Here is a look at what I am currently working on.

My idea with these paintings was to create portraits inspired by wellknown fairytale characters, i.e. Snowwhite, Litte Red Riding Hood and Peter Pan.

I wanted to give a human face to very archetypal characters and to interpret their stories in a different way – to bring the animal out in the princess and to introduce death and sexuality into stories where eternal youth and innocence have been dominant principles.

The series has been inspired a great deal by some of my favorite authors, Neil Gaiman and Angela Carter, and their alternative renderings of fairytales.

The paintings I have posted are mostly works in progress and there is more work to come – I expect to make a total of at least twelve portraits in this series.

Enjoy
