Oil Painting Woman

I am a professional artist based in London, UK.

My oil paintings are filled with emotion and have an underlying autobiographical theme to them.

I have a neurological sleep disorder, called narcolepsy, and because of this, I can frequently experience hypnogogic hallucinations; a phenomenon that occurs in the transition between wakefulness and dream sleep. This effectively means I dream and hallucinate while I am awake. While the condition is limiting in everyday life, it provides another dimension for creativity that I explore and document in my artwork. Images from my subconscious seem to appear on the canvas as I paint, and even reference material, from life or photographs, begin to distort and morph into something new.
Because Paintings created using Hypnagogic Dream Intrusion is very rare. I am working with neurologists at Guys Hospital to clearer understand why this happens and I am talking with BBC producers about creating a documentary on hypnogogia and creativity.
