Stroud, Gloucestershire, UK
Artist and Musician
The evolution of my consciousness transpires in several different forms.
From painting, to mediation, art, music, nature, dance and discussion
I love to explore the transient dimensions that are life through
collaboration and personal journey, expressing the soul in all its aesthetic
and humble beauty. Nature, the divine, emotion, expression are all
running themes in my work.
For me, painting with its infinite palate of colours and form is a wonderful way to depict the world around us and express the spirit inside us. My painting endeavours to portray a profoundly abstract interpretation of the spirit and nature; revealing emotion and the emergence of the divine though the expressive nurturing of hue, tone and dramatic gestures of brush strokes across the canvas. Photographical abstraction too with its specific tool set allows me to adjust the image to unfold hidden realities beyond the vision of our awareness opening our minds to the possibilities of other worlds and the transcendent.
Musically playing guitar with the devotional dance band The Ragababas, mentoring The Young Ragababas and practicing various kirtan, gospel and chanting groups including Enchanting the Void is a wonderful way to connect with people, spread a message of peace, unity and induce self awareness and therapeutic healing. Focusing on world music of a divine and spiritual nature is powerfully uplifting, there is a fantastic variety of expression and culture: it has an awesome power of bringing people together and breaking down barriers.
