The Poet’s Dream, a metamorphosis

This work has transformed into various shapes and colours. The artist explores metamorphosis. Mostly painting in the evening with no red paint, she utilised nail polish to complete the work with shades of pink and orange. With her risk-taking and exploration of emotions, this work is her celebration of renewed trust often shaded by the shadows of doubt.

About Him to the Hummingbird:

It’s a celebration of loss and the loose strokes and colours fade into a distorted shape with bright colours that playfully serves as fun antitheses to a loved one’s departure. The painting explores remembrance and finding beauty in pain.
