1 Flight of the Eter­nal Dream

“Here’s the most chal­leng­ing paint­ing I’ve ever done. My aim was to make it look more clas­si­cal, but with a fan­tasy twist. I wanted the viewer to feel like time had stopped and this rare, in­ti­mate mo­ment was cap­tured.”

2 Feath­ers of Gemini

“This ex­plores the themes of se­cret friend­ships, a spe­cial con­nec­tion be­tween women and mys­ti­cal an­i­mals. I wanted to show these two en­ti­ties com­fort­able and yet vul­ner­a­ble with each other.”

3 So­lis

“This im­age was more ex­per­i­men­tal for me. It’s when I started play­ing with a softer and a lighter colour pal­ette and adding gold leaf to de­tailed ar­eas.”

4 The moon Guardian

“I was in­spired by Ara­bian Nights and Prince of Per­sia. I wanted to try my hand at a night-time scene and fab­ric trans­parency.”

5 Auri Velum

“This paint­ing is part of a small se­ries of women and their gi­ant Betta fishes. I wanted their friend­ship to be based on pro­tec­tion. The Betta fish is a liv­ing golden veil, cover­ing and guard­ing her in­no­cence from the world.”
