Inspired by dreams, synchronicities, myths, and the feeling of being in the creative flow, my most recent paintings often feature a prominent female presence intertwined with ethereal skies and mysterious seas. Through these dreamy worlds filled with fairytale-like motifs, I explore universal themes of love, passion, faith, inspiration, inner-strength and transformation. It is my hope to capture the magic of reconnecting to our Divine, creative nature and to remind the viewers that they are the Creatrixes of their own stories.
