In processing traumas or passing the time, fairy tales have been an ever present element in my life since childhood. I was raised believing fairies lived in our trees, cats could outsmart ogres, and wolves hid in grandparents’ clothes. Fairy tales offer a layer to the worlds I create where the absurd and fantastic are more real than the mundane.
