Inspirations From Childhood
When I was a Child I Dreamed of what I would Find Inside the Sea

*This work was inspired from my early impressions of swimming in water. My first introduction to water was when I was five and I then learnt how to swim in a pool. Soon after I was diving from high boards. Loving every minute of it and feeling like a fish. I remember always being excited during summer holidays when my parents took me to a lake, beach or the sea.
My imagination was wild as a child and still is. I dreamed that I would see amazing creatures/animals inside the sea but the places I visited were devoid of the sea creatures I imagined. This was disappointing but at least I still had my imagination, and I could see these sea creatures on TV and in books.
When I create art I arrange a particular reality and this involves my representing a vision
that is cathartic or purgative or cleansing for me or for my audience.
