I work digitally to emulate a scratchboard technique. The use of line tells a story. I work with line to build a special feeling between the image and viewer, and when it works, there is nothing more satisfying or magical. My personal work tends to focus on the stories going back generations that repeat from culture to culture. It is the timelessness and verbal tradition of folk tales that pulls me and inspires me to provide an image or setting to tales only whispered about.
