I like to create stories and depict the tension between what's happening now and what just happened - or is going to happen. A girl embracing a bear - what is their relationship? Is she in danger. Or brokenhearted? A woman reading a letter - What news does the letter carry? Does it change her life? I'm inspired by San Francisco with its millions of stories, comic-books, Josef Frank textile designs, Mexican wrestlers, doodles, the short stories of Haruki Murakami...and my own daydreams and flights of fancy.
