I have always been interested in children's books and try to emulate the look and feel of them in creating my artists books. My subject matter tends to be on the dark side, often dealing with death or life's cruelties. I enjoy the contrast between black and white,?beauty and ugliness, sadness and humor and use dualism as a means to find balance within my work.
