“Most of my projects are inspired by a bygone era, particularly the 1940s and 50s.  Infatuated with Old Hollywood, I embrace the tackiness of Americana, and exploring the theme of faded glamour allows me to live vicariously through my projects and be closer to this world which no longer exists.  Whether I explore the theme of faded glamour through a person or a place, to me there is something fascinatingly tragic about a star on the wane, or a once bustling seaside resort which lies deserted and decaying.”
