In my early twenties, I once experienced a strange nightmare like none other. I was in some gorgeous desert land where the sun seemed to create glitter in the sand. In some places there, the sand even appeared gold.

Although this dwelling’s beauty masked something sinister. There was an underground area that housed human-eating sand serpents. Their origin was apparently something ancient according to locals in the dream. I have no idea why I was there but was always fascinated by the scenery. That place has inspired many of my artworks to this day.

The Dark Maiden

Another one of my most terrifying of nightmares involved my younger sister, my mother, and myself. We struggled to escape a large structure designed by something ancient and evil. The Dark Maiden, was a haunting figure from those recurring dreams. She was not evil like that place, but rather a soul trapped inside a place she didn’t want to be. That place was the basis for my Nightmare World.

This place pictured above is based off a setting wherein the sky turned completely red and a glow filled everything surrounding. It was a fantastic vision all directly from my nightmares.

Could you imagine walking past a place like this during the night? I took just such the stroll once in a nightmare. That walk inspired this art.

Has someone ever grabbed you? Did it send a shock through your system? This early concept is inspired by a nightmare where some—thing did just that.

…and it didn’t let go until I woke up.
