"A lot of my work is heavily influenced by film noir and the intricate narratives those stories tell with light and shadow. I wanted this image to be about lost love and longing. This is a simple composition as far there being only a few simple objects, but each one helps outline the plot. The glass bird and the tiny anchor around her neck are meant to give the sense of being lost at sea. The frozen clock and the shadow over one eye represents her living partly in the past."
