Blooming Dreams

Blooming Dreams is a collection of acrylic gouache paintings that combine flora and fauna to express my emotions in a tangible way. Flowers, colors, and other elements are deliberately selected based on symbolic meanings to strengthen those intentions. Rather than focusing on human subjects, I use animals as actors to portray the enigmatic mind in these scenes. Recurring animals in my paintings are often archetypes that appear in fables and fairy tales, including cats, foxes, and owls. Although each piece stems from my own personal stories, my goal is for viewers to resonate with my work through their own experiences.
