Fragile heart of glass
In a cold monochrome world
Life painted in blood

   "My work isn’t like the work of Edward Munch – paintings shot through with obvious expressions of pain. My paintings, rather, are easy on the eye & serve to dissipate the pain."

   "Looking back, I can see that my works were born from a sense of sorrow. The glassy, transparent human figures I was painting were born out of heartache, a mental suffering caused by my experience with the frailty of human relations."

   "Since I feel empty, I need energy – I need the energy of Nature. Listening to pines & communing with stones means that I am listening & taking to heart the lessons that nature has to offer."

   "In 2010, illness posed a serious threat to my life, & so it was that I experienced an awareness of my mortality firsthand. Due to the treatments I was receiving, sometimes I just wouldn’t have any get-up-&-go. Sometimes I felt like I was on the brink & all I could do was just lie in bed. It was then that I felt the fragility of life & its utter emptiness."
