“I find dreams hard to paint but I wanted to make this one surreal. I read once that Ravens are the keepers of dark secrets and act as a veil between reality and the unknown. She walks through a dead forest that comes through ice to give a sense that she may be on the other side. I was asked if I actually dreamt this, I dreamt of parts of it. I find that my artistic side just takes over and wants to balance things so it changes and ends up being only the essence of a dream.”
