"These pieces make up a part of an ongoing series, Housings (Dream Paintings), which seeks to capture the inexpressible feelings and the unreal architecture of dreaming. I'm fascinated by the stories the mind tells itself through dreams and the metaphors which help us to better understand our own consciousness. I'm interested in the attempt to share with others the uniquely personal meanings of dreams."
