In early childhood, my father and stepmother encouraged me to make drawings and paintings about what I dreamed the night before. Like many, my parents often pinned my work to the refrigerator, but they also framed many of these mementos. It was a marvelous form of validation for me and influenced my love for painting today.

Daydream: A dreamlike musing or fantasy while awake, especially of the fulfillment of wishes or hopes.
American Heritage Dictionary

"Reason and logic do not belong in a work of art. It should approach the state of a dream."
