Eyes Wide Shut Dreams are a driving force behind my work; the things I see with my eyes wide shut. I scrutinise my inner life to discover my origin, what makes me who I am, and what my destination is. As an artist I capture dreams and visualise emotions. Our inner world is vast, limitless and sometimes frightening. Yet, it is also the realm of truth and wisdom. That is why I face the challenge to investigate what I see with my eyes wide shut. Nothing in colour; just light and darkness; raw and honest. I invite you to accompany me on the journeys where dreams and drawings have taken me.
