Artwork Description

There is a native american legend in which an Elder had a vision. He was instructed by Iktomi, the great trickster and teacher of wisdom, in the form of a spider, of the cycles of life. As Ikotomi spoke, he spun a web across the Elder's willow hoops, and from this created a dreamcatcher web. The elder passed on his vision to his people. Dreamcatchers are hung above one's bed or in the home to sift dreams and visions. The good of dreams are captured in the web of life and carried with you .... but any bad dreams escape through the center hole. At any rate, that was the inspiration for this picture. What came of it is something entirely of its own, with its own life and story.

This is the first time that I have visited this site and yet I have immensely enjoyed looking through your work, but this has to be my favourite picture. The tones and shades seem a lot bolder. There is something very unique about your work, it differs very much to the usual fantasy art I see.

I had a wonderful time while looking at your art! It is very magical and dream-like...Actually I saw a T-shirt with the faery-print here recently! Kind of cool, because I live in Sweden...too big for me, unfortunately...That was it. I love all of your work!

I think it's amazing the way the colors are used in this painting to convey the mood so well. I love the surreal, dreamlike qualities of this piece.
