'Birth Dream' is a symbolic interpretation of a birth dream I experienced while pregnant with my daughter. I started painting it during my pregnancy and finished it one year after giving birth. This painting encapsulates the unity of the young family I have created, while portraying the feminine power of a mother and the abundance that motherhood brings. You can see the past me (left) to the present me (right), which shows my progress and evolution as an artist while capturing "me" in the biggest transition of my life. The lesson is I don't have to be "perfect", as that doesn't exist, but I must be present to know where I am going.
