Images of the night painted on large canvasses. This other reality fascinates the painter —the illusive reality from within brought into consciousness. Thea uses many motifs with universal themes and expresses the psyche of humankind from pre-history and pre-language. These are the archetypal symbols of love and war, life and death expressed in vivid colors.

In one of the early paintings we find ourselves in a frozen wasteland. The scenery is Ice & snow. Yet a golden figure with outstretched wings emerges out of the fog. The painter is engulfed with warmth as they merge. Other scenes in the Far North follow. Mythical animals appear in "Going Away." This mystical quality presented by the dream continues to influence the painter in future work.
