Dreamer was completed over the course of 13 months (November 2011-December 2012). It is meant to be viewed chronologically. This series is loosely inspired by Act II of The Nutcracker ballet.
In the ballet, the dreamlike setting of the Land of Sweets is explored and observed by the main characters. The inhabitants of this beautiful, peaceful land are clothed in soft pastel tones with pops of vivid color. Flowers, snowflakes, and acrobats are among these inhabitants.
As a child, I danced alongside the Moscow Ballet in The Nutcracker and felt so alive with excitement during those performances that I felt compelled to create this series. My goal with Dreamer is to inspire a sense of enthusiasm for fantasy in people of any age.
