I became interested in painting from dream narratives, when my dreams began to carry messages. I wanted to explore their nature, and how they impacted on my outer life. My dreams then began to play a major role in my life and work. By investigating them, I investigated my deeper self. The purpose was to free myself from this world and bring about a new consciousness, that allowed room for my thoughts, my pain, desires and fears to exist and be examined as a way to steer myself towards peace.

Symbolism is the language of dreams, and water is a key component in my recent work. I used this as a metaphor of the deep subconscious. I came to find that I had to delve into my inner depth and that therein lived the ruling emotions. This was the home of freedom and liberation, the home of all those emotional treasures. This paralleled nature as well - to find the treasures of this earth one must dig deep, there you’ll find the oil, diamond and gold.
