"I initially studied contemporary art, but after 10 years of bookselling, I developed a love of woodcut and linocut illustrations. Around this time I started drawing a character with brush pen, in little scenarios. I suppose I was quite influenced by Keith Haring initially. These visual scenarios would often portray dreams, desires, or psychological processes. Ancient and religous imagery started to influence me more and more, as I realised it often held a magic or unfathomable element, which is harder to find in a lot of visual art or graphic work today. I continue to pursue the unfathomable and attempt to make curious images in this way."
