“The goal of my artwork is to start a conversation with its viewers, and collaborate with them in bringing the art to life. Art not seen is art just waiting to live. My art tells stories, sets a mood. I fill the canvas with bits of my subconscious and allow them to tell a tale. When the viewer “reads” my story in the work, they also fill in what they see and feel, injecting their own meaning and completing the life of the painting.”
