For individual paintings, I use paint to explore the emotive nature of color. It has the ability to transform my B&W sketches into multi-dimensional works of art. A great metaphor for the complexity of emotions.
For the collaborative paintings, the unspoken intimacy of creating together brings about a deeper connection. To be part of someone's world as they create is an experience to behold. It is the ability to connect, while holding space for yourself in the presence of others.
