The book as an object is symbolically a very rich and independent format. Its history and cultural significance provide endless scope for artistic discoveries and interpretation, not only being a container for stories but being a story in itself, its whole life and existence in time being read from its tactile details and structural function. I concern myself with the “Complete Book” where all the details work together to form a consistent whole, everything ties together to advance the storytelling. I create storylines in visual form, much like illustrating an inner journey, with archetypal connections to the outside world. I hope to create a certain resonance in those who see my work, to stir a sense of recollection of what we all share in our collective subconscious, and to hopefully inspire the viewer to explore their own personal stories residing within.
