When I was young, I was fascinated by catalogues. Also, I picked up objects I found on the pavement, and kept them in a large coffee can. I first experienced paintings through looking at pictures of them in books, so I suspect I’ve associated the two forms ever since. Now, I make drawings and paintings, some of which get folded, spindled and mutilated into book-like shapes. I’m left-handed, and I believe in magic.
