I'm very interested in pictographic images as modes of communication and their relationship to folklore. I've also been looking at the distortion of language and information that occurs as cultural objects
and stories are viewed out of context by outsiders.

 The images I make are a personal and idiosyncratic dictionary of symbols with pictographic imagery rooted in the history and folklore of the Arctic. They are an attempt to communicate with the long gone and far away, and to create a new personal narrative and connection to these far off places.

  1. Hello,
    I am a French artist.
    Maybe you see my website:
    Category: Art gallery.
    its number is P 167.
    I painted a picture (which is sold) on the love letter, "THE LOVE LETTER Yukagir"
       I have also made prints for this letter attracted me enormously.
    I have a comment on this work that could possibly interest you, who knows?
