Viewing art is an act of intimacy. You give me a gift by allowing me into your safe space, and trust me to show you things that excite, compel or challenge you. This is a privilege and I do not take it for granted. I hope to give you something that resonates with your soul and seek to forge a bond between us, one that endures long after you have left the canvas.
