I’m a mixed media artist who likes to play with and mix up different creative mediums, that once finished, hope that they ask questions, illuminate universal truths, or illustrate the big mystery with which we call life.
Music is a big part of my creative process, for me the two go together. When I’m doing my art I’ve like to have my music playing loud, ether blasting out of the speakers or trough my head phones. The music I listen too is a very eclectic range from punk rock to Buddhist chants , the music acts as a partner to the creative act. For me there’s a certain ancient connection between the two, something ceremonial that helps to bring out the art.
Depending on which medium I’m playing with ,there are a few concepts that flow through my work , ranging from the mythical , the spiritual , the political to the pop , sometimes it’s a blend of one or the other.
My inspiration for my art comes from many different sources, I’m a great believer in ’ feeding the mind ‘, which for me involves taking in alot of information , from various types of literature , documentary films , websites from that great information highway known as the internet , or just day to day life etc .
I think it’s a good thing to keep learning as an artist, to be open minded, because when you do that, you and your art keep growing.............................
