This series of watercolours arose through working with my childhood dream. My childhood dream was the focus of my MA dissertation In Process Oriented Psychology. Process Oriented Psychology considered the very first dream you remember or the earliest memory you have to represent a fundamental pattern running through your life. In 2015 I completed an MA dissertation exploring the energies within my Childhood dream and how they underlie my painting process. I had this dream when I was 3 years old, and at the age of 5 I knew I wanted to be an artist. I used art-based research to explore this connection. The works on this page have resulted from this research.
Each painting gave rise to an accompanying poem. You can watch the paintings and poems together in a video production in the RESOURCES dropdown menu under VIDEO.
