Artist's Statement:
My books and posters are inspired by woodcut novels from the nineteen twenties and thirties. These beautiful books told their their stories in pictures. The stories in my novels are more suited to words. So instead of carrying the story, the illustrations punctuate, emphasize, comment, joke, and decorate. Pictures can instantly set a mood and an attitude, serving as a platform for launching words. Telling stories in words and pictures feels natural to me.
