A short paragraph about what kind of art you do and the techniques involved.
In a nutshell, my work is a cross between Twilight Zone weirdness and Six Feet Under family drama with a pinch of silliness to make it all go down. I am interested in what some might call mystery--not in the detective novel sense, but rather in the sense of wonder. I guess I think the world is a little strange, and I'm ok with that. In my fiction, I use little bits of the fantastical to make that point.
