In this thesis, I talk about the influence in my growth and the development of my artworks during these past two years in fine arts studio of Rochester Institute of Technology where I pursued my Master of Fine Arts degree. I analyze how I get ideas from my childhood memory and my childhood fantasy and how I begin to record my everyday dreams and put them in my artworks. Besides, I explain how I mix my dream artworks with an observation of reality at the end of my graduate study. Besides, I analyze my use of materials, my improvement of skills, the success and failure of my thesis artworks and the installation of my thesis show. In addition, I mention how I try to transfer my ideas into abstract paintings, and what I am going to explore in the future.
