This site is a collection of artworks that began in 2003. It was from that point forward where the first step was taken on a journey exploring the contents of life, living. Each artwork like a paragraph in a book is the expression of these contents discovered. And each body of artwork like chapters when brought together, serve towards completing a single book with a story being told. ’Self, Culture, Nature’, ‘Love in Spite of Everything’, and currently ‘Life Drawings’ are the chapters written thus far. And although more than a decade in the making, this book is far from complete.
