Narrative takes the focal point of my illustrations, whether it is communicating the voice of another writer or my own authorial story. I alter the media depending on the project to reflect the atmosphere I wish to create. A continuous theme that seems to appear in my work is culture, either harnessing imagery from the Eastern half of my upbringing or communicating cultural messages in a context unfamiliar to the inhabitants of this world. I use the human figure as a devise to communicate through and with the figure is where my creative process begins, observing it in this physical reality. I then begin to escape from this world and incorporate the connection with the spiritual realm by letting lucid imagination take over in my mind.
