A statement from the artist:
'About me? Poet and storyunteller. I like merfolk. Visuals tickle my uvula.. I like the indescribable, the irrecoverable, the unrecognizable and the alluringly indecipherable. I think that means I just like nature. Also, I believe (perhaps mistakenly) I am part of nature.'
