“(When draw­ing) I feel like a time trav­el­ling coroner, and I speak to all kinds of ghosts and ju­ries and see dif­fer­ent pock­ets of his­tory,” she says. “Some­body re­cently told me it’s like a map of a mem­ory; I’m try­ing to re­mem­ber a bad thing that hap­pened. Lots of char­ac­ters are reap­pear­ing, and the sym­bols are lifted from the mythol­ogy of my dreams which I have been doc­u­ment­ing.

“My desk cur­rently has a mu­sic box, crys­tals from a friend who passed away, a big ce­ramic poo­dle, a lamp with a red bulb and a pho­to­graph of a farmer from the Great De­pres­sion cry­ing after the first rain­fall. Although I al­ways work alone in the phys­i­cal world (I’ve never been able to share a stu­dio), I work from any­where pri­vate. But I’m a Gem­ini so I’m never lonely. I al­ways have a dis­agree­able ver­sion of my­self to talk down from a per­sonal con­spir­acy.”
