The internal thoughts and half recognised feelings which exist in us all are the base inspirations of my work. My aim is to capture the subtle expression and unconscious gesture of an individual immersed in a private moment of reflection. This is accomplished by the manipulation of color, pattern and composition to complement the psychological mood of the individual. My intent is to leave the viewer with a new appreciation for his/ her own private reflection. The color palette I use dispels the darkness of brooding contemplation and elevates the moment into a chance for growth within the individual.
