“I am fascinated by animals and the way they are used to convey narratives. From the roles they play in mythology, as iconic symbols, and their ability to convey messages, often carrying out complex roles.
I am drawn to myth because it allows the impossible to happen; challenging our perceptions by playing with assumptions of the real and the supposed.
I am interested in the universality of myth, narrative and symbolism, how common themes exist in the mythology of more than one culture.”
