I am an artist and psychologist who has been studying fairy tales and folklore for a number of years now. Unlike therapists which have studied this field I am a cross-cultural psychologist who has done research on solid tangible sciences such as physical human health across cultures.

I also have a passion for history and so I constantly attempt to integrate both history and culture into the understanding of folklore, which is obviously constantly growing and changing. Like any social field the study of fairy tales is constantly changing as are the opinions of those doing the research. There is also much disagreement about what different fairy tales mean and used to mean. It is not so metric as my other fields of study, at the same time of course it still requires a person to be reasonable, and logical using what they know of the cultures that the fairy tales came from and historical fact.
