The portraits in my collection are an avenue for discussion about the emotions all humans experience, a topic to which each and every person can relate.
The portraits in my collection are an avenue for discussion about the emotions all humans experience, a topic to which each and every person can relate. This universal emotional experience joins us together. This body of work creates a connection to cultivate a bond of shared emotional experience across time and preconceived societal boundaries. Each of the unique floral motifs in my work is selected for its symbolic meaning according to the western tradition of assigning symbolism to flowers. I incorporate these floral elements for the beauty they add to the portraits, and utilize them as important visual cues that add to the emotional content within the paintings.
