Many a conversation with myself has carried me through the lockdown – calmed me down. Calmed me, soothed me, comforted me, cheered me up and also scared me.

These pictures reflect my inner dialogue, the journey into my fantasy world – a place of retreat and shelter. I practised getting to this place at an early age. I meet my grandchild there, there is a silent understanding between us – aliveness.

These moments are precious gifts for me.
