About the piece
I like to paint people in an emotional intimate moment, unguarded as people are at their most vulnerable. Capturing this beauty is what attracts me grately. A collage of vintage book pages bonded together into one sheet on a mixed media paper. The layers and varying tones of this work convey emotion and offer depth and a 3-dimensional effect that brings this piece to life.
