“Whether physical or digital, for me the abstract art I share with the world is usually with the intention of simply providing people with new unknown things to look at. Hopefully by encountering and interacting visually with these works for however long, the opportunity arises for reflection, allowing the subconscious mind to speak in ways that can be heard and reacted to. I share my art with the hope that it can provide these moments in time to allow for contemplation and self discovery.”
