“Art allows communication without using language. It sparks emotion and ultimately whatever the viewer sees and feels becomes its reality. I believe a painting should leave the viewer in a state of wonderment, questioning. The painting should tell a story, but it is whatever the viewer imagines it to be. What happened before that moment in time, and why?”
