Artist Statement

I see through dreams, and I see through memories. Most of the things, and stuff I come up with come from things I dreamed about, or fragments of my memories that I connect to things I’ve thought about, or are important, meaningful to me as an individual.


Dreams allow me to see things that I’m not able to see while being awake. Dreams allow me to feel things I’m not able to feel while I’m awake. Dreams allow me to live.  I rely on my dreams for my creative process.


I’m interested in the layers of my dreams; while someone of them feel very mundane, others feel more like a structure full of layers I need to study in order to connect the dots.  It is also a discovery of myself.




I always go back to places looking for the feeling, the experience, and the answers.
