Girl with Dreams - Cover by Sybille Sterk

Sub Title: Catch them when you can

This is the final image in the series and the cover for my Redbubble calendar.

Again, a romantic image at first glance, but like all others there’s a little bit more behind it. When we begin our lives (hopefully) we’re still full of dreams, looking forward to growing up and becoming an adult as a great adventure and often with much impatience. We hold the key to fulfill our dreams but life is not always gentle and there are many dark clouds at the horizon. This image includes elements from some of the other images and is the starting point for all of them, the same way as we hold the key elements for our life when we are young, it just depends on what we make of them.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
