“In my practice, I look to excavate various anxieties, fears, stored thoughts, and experiences by working with the spontaneous and dream-like arena of watercolor and ink. Using a variety of techniques, I attempt to pull out images and forms to get to the foundation of our human experience.” — Jamie Romanet
