  1. This afternoon I wandered through the FAB gallery and experienced “schism”. Congratulations on your terrific work. I am a psychology major and I found your description particularly interesting, about the influence Freud and Jung had on your work. The inkblot-looking designs in the smaller works are beautifully reminiscent of early psychoanalysis. Well done, and good luck in your future endeavours!

  2. 🙂 Thanks, I need all the help I can get.
