"Glad you're interested in exhibiting. I feel like I'm picking candy when deciding what pieces to consider from your work - they're all visually appealing."

I spent a good deal of time looking at the work on your website and found it interesting and compelling visually, the reflected nature of the imagery on a diagonal in contrast to what our eyes are used to seeing flipped on 180 degrees kept them exploring. There’s an elemental, organic feel to the works with the imagery built and balanced with your bold limited palette, shapes and lines and the titles bring in a whole new level of intrigue into our perception and your thoughts about the works.
