‘No Nightmares, No Dreams’Series
This set of works focuses on the prayer I used to tell myself every night before I went to sleep as a child. These semi-abstract figures formed by emotional markings all represent different responses to fear. “God bless everyone I know and love, keep me safe, and watch over me. Please let me have no nightmares, no dreams. I love you, God, amen.” Although I am not religious now, this prayer is something I’ve touched on in my mental health and shadow work journey. This limited series was sold out and is being exclusively re-released with Draw A Dot.
