“I Wonder a Wonderland” takes viewers to another dimension, one filled with sweetness, imagination and possibilities. The artist explains the subject of her paintings is inspired by the cat’s nature and personality, one that complements her own. Through this series of works, the artist draws attention to the obscurity of daily objects.

The imagination is weaved into the essence of each work, liberating the viewer of rules of obligations that come with society. With inspiration and simplicity, the artist invites everyone to view their daily lives with the same wonder and regard.
