People often ask what inspires the content in my paintings. I choose to leave my personal inspiration for my paintings as a mystery to the viewer. I encourage the viewer to let their mind go, to project their emotions and thoughts onto the piece without inhibiting or censoring. Because my figurative shapes lack emotional definition, the experience of filling in those voids rests with the viewers: The emotions and thoughts that you see in the painting are your own. Perhaps you are reliving your own life experiences, or perhaps you are imagining how you might feel if you were there.
