Notations

 

The Notation series of drawings are visual poems. They are contemplative works that bring voice to the quiet celebrations of everyday life. They are spaces to share observations, discover interconnectedness, and reveal innermost thoughts. The small scale reflects the intimate and introspective nature of the work.
