"I love the moving, sublime qualities in your abstract paintings. Each of your works is incredibly elemental. Using sensuous, romantic colors they convey a rich passion that is compelling. Collectively, your contemporary works are vivid, expressionist paintings that communicate profound feelings to the viewer. "
