Psychology defines fantasy as a vehicle to understanding our desires, motivation, beliefs, attitudes, impulses and, above all else, our wishes. Fantasy is also described to be the root of mental illness or loss of reality as well as the impetus to all scientific discovery. My current paintings are a part of a larger series based on the fairy tale, Legend of the Bird Queen. This series explores the world of fantasy and delusion throughout the life of one girl. It is my love letter.
