My latest series is an interpretation of hopes, dreams, and wishes – evoking a universal state of unconscious desire while also embodying my personal wish: to capture what speaks to me in the hope that it will speak to others. I am endlessly fascinated by how someone’s outer world can be represented so clearly yet their inner world remains hidden. I simplify my vision to allow space for depth of emotion that is hinted at but not fully revealed. At its most basic level, art itself is a type of wish fulfillment – a rearrangement and retelling of reality into something more orderly and idealized, a way to satisfy a desire through pure imagination.
