My work is essentially dependent upon key elements of emotional association. My drawings are, in this sense, like my spirit, which combines actual dreams with the experience of the reality of everyday life. For me there are themes and abstract expressions of what we can call ‘dream-logic’. One of the key roles in my relationship to contemporary art is that of dealing with responses to the dream images that animate our lives. Through my work I hope to achieve a visual expression of the relationships between the experiences of dreaming and the deeper human condition in terms of my own personal experiences and the connections between these and the broader nature of the traditions of Shamanism.
