My work explores the connection between the artist and the viewer, the energy exchanged between the two.
It's about emotional response, tactile, visceral, abstract, created with a limited color palette, mixing the colors on the surface. It's as much a conversation as a picture, a snapshot of emotion, a thread running between the observer and the observed.
