Having my hands in the dirt since birth, I've spent decades observing patterns in the sky, plants, and animals.
I continue to deeply examine details
of the world around us as a daily practice.
In Kandinsky's words, art can be a "child of its time" or a "mother of the future."
So, these drawings mark the next generation of new ideas, showing people as an extension of ecology. Their purpose is to overcome the illusion of separation, representing the protection of nature as the protection of our existence.
What places will these go next?
Anyone can paint...
...but making things surreal is unique!
Hundreds more ideas live in my mind, brewing away, slowly developing more flavor over time. Like Salvador Dali and Octavio Ocampo, I'm looking for ingenuity in the linework.
Increasingly, my art is becoming a personal meditation on life's beauty, bringing Rumi's words to mind: "Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."
As a self-taught artist, progress is like growing strong roots underground, making subtle changes invisible to all. Although I've not quite bloomed yet, tiny shoots are emerging, indicating future potential!
