It is important to consider the idea that art can convey something that is sensory oriented. I attempt to use painting and drawing to serve as a bridge to relatable ideas. Within the artwork, there is abstract-based information put before each viewer in hopes that a personal contemplative bond might occur. It is a privilege to engage with making art and it is possible that time and efforts devoted to this process results in an accessible means of expression. Titling of artwork reflects something of the present and hopefully strengthens poetic memory.
