Art and stories are all around us, from popular culture to ancient folklore. People use both to understand their world, understand others, and forge a path for the future. Fairies, unicorns, mermaids, kelpies… each creature reflects an aspect of how humanity has seen the world. Through interpretation of these stories and creatures, I strive to understand myself and to give others a place to dream. I believe in the power of stories, a tangible dream that gives us a respite from reality while also building us up to take on the world. Will you come and dream with me?
