The Code - A Collage Series
Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints
his own nature into his pictures.
~Henry Ward Beecher
Art sometimes paints itself. As I paint, I find it’s an exquisite rush to be part creator and part audience. It can be an extraordinarily spontaneous journey – almost guided. It’s often in sync with my life. I’m not a big planner. I feel my way through and the more I learn to focus on day to day life, the better I do. My art becomes a reflection of this. Some live on a wing and a prayer and I don’t feel too far from that. It’s part of who I am.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.
"The moment one gives close attention to anything,
even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
