My seven year old self has always maintained more power within me than I care to admit. Iā€™m still deeply connected to her thoughts and fantasies. My ability to find magic within the ordinary is greatly due to the influence of my family. (Although they will never admit this.)  My upbringing was made up of searches for the fantastical underbelly within an otherwise quiet universe.

Make-believe and reality was heavily intertwined in my childhood. So my work has become a way of protecting that personal universe that now only exists within my memory. The only way to share my recollections of fantasy within reality is through the process of constructed environments and animations. Because if I had not learn to create what I remember. The magic risks being left as only a memory.
