"Some of your works remind me Modigliani"

"Love your work. Would like to see more."

"I really like your color use."

"The upper picture, where the viewer can connect directly with the subject through eye contact, is very engaging. However, like the lower picture, visiting the artists website, we are denied that connection: the eyes are obscured. I find that uncomfortable and anaesthetising. The eyes betray emotion. Obscuring them obscures the moment."

"beautiful, yet haunting."

"its kind of freaking me out!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"They can feel my soul."
