I consider my childhood to be the most influential period of my life and feel as if I have remained there, in wonder-filled stories and adventures. Fairy tales, sacred texts and pseudo-scientific treatises from around the world have fascinated me from my childhood and I have continued to explore them throughout my artistic practice.

My art is a reference to those deeply rooted devotions we possess as a species, intricately woven into my own psychological experiences. Each piece contains a specific story that reveals itself layer by layer to the viewer, like a slowly recalled memory. I focus on strange creatures because we all make monsters out of others and ourselves. Our closest companions are always some kind of beasts, hidden in the company of our shadow-selves.

The current series I am working on is inspired by Hippocrates’ theory of the four Humors or Temperaments. These four different personality types (phlegmatic, sanguine, choleric and melancholic) correspond to four energies that can be defined in various differentiated ways. Through Hippocrates I am exploring the idea of the environment, our inner selves and that one cannot be extracted from the other, they rely on each other in order to exist.
