My work is heavily influenced by dreams and the subconscious, levels of being in which the language of symbols comes through loud and clear. I've always felt that dreams make some sort of intrinsic emotional sense, and that the key to the universe could be found in them, if it could be found anywhere at all. The starting point for my paintings is the belief that waking life is only part of the whole picture, while subliminal states show us a glimmer of the truth.

In my paintings, I try to bridge the gap between the everyday, familiar things that fill our lives and the intangible realities beneath the surface that I believe many people accept, but rarely acknowledge.
