Honestly, this series of drawings disturbs me, enough so that I sent an e-mail asking whether you're okay. But my e-mails aren't getting through apparently.

I hope you're alright, if not I hope you talk to somebody you trust about what you're going through.

People are more important than any work of art, art only exists to serve our expression, it has no value beyond the human equation. Too many artists tend to forget this it seems.

So you have not been liberated by you silence, you still need to expound.

There's a confidence to the way you use watercolours, but also a fragility which underscores the text. I really think these are beautiful works. I'm loving this series so much. Subtle, stark but filled with intensity.

Yup, me too. Perhaps it's some monstrous creature that turns in its sleep under the earth. And with it, we change.

I love the soft smoke of color in your work

The only thing that I find disturbing about art is not doing it. Your honesty inspires me.
