Artist Statement


There is a compulsion that causes me to create as many pieces as I can while dissecting their meaning personally and visually. Much of my work relates to Norse, Celtic, Icelandic symbols and pagan religions. I mainly do this through symbols called sigils.The sigils I make are linear and each conveys a certain wish or desire. However the point of sigils is that only the creator knows their meaning, which leaves people to make their own interpretations. The metaphysical has always been of interest to me and has influenced every part of my life. I believe that my work is a way for me to relate to my identity and escape the current reality I find myself in, or create a new one.
