What Was That? I believe in ghosts. Though I have never had what I would consider a genuine paranormal experience, I have certainly heard my share of unexplained “bumps in the night,” always accompanied by a little shiver of fear and excitement followed by a desperate curiosity.  The series of drawings entitled What Was That examines these instinctive reactions to perceived paranormal events. Using video stills from popular ghost hunting reality television shows, I portray individuals frozen in the act of investigating and responding to sudden unexplained sounds and sensations associated with suspected ghostly activity.

What Was That? was shown at Kirkland Arts Center, Kirkland WA, in September 2009 as part of the group show "False Proof" curated by Cable Griffith.
