Creating artwork is a personal, internal interpretation of the outside world. The subject matters veer toward the seemingly lonely and left out while contrasting and/or saturated colors express my passion for a connection with someone. Compassion, solace, healing, and hope fuel the inspiration for this team of verbal versus non-verbal communication.
