Spirit of the Universe 

The spirit of the universe responds to action -wrote this in my notebook sorry I don’t have a source nonetheless truer words have never been written. 

It has been full on lately in the studio working on various recycled cardboard WIPs and keeping the dream alive. I live in a place where art is one of those things treated as a luxury item so making art that is meant to elate and spark thought, feeling and promite healing seems like an endless uphill climb! This is why it is important to keep focus on the work and to not let these doubts and thoughts threaten the mission. I decided many years ago to develop my art and with the intention of doing it for the rest of my life, and this has not changed to this day. Sure I have had my fair share of setbacks and sometimes the valleys have been deep. I have managed to always find the jewel of wisdom in each and every one of my experiences, even if it takes longer than I would like, this has been vital in keeping my art positive, and sticking to my intentions of bringing wellness, good vibes and peace into this world.

‘Frida’ hälts hybrid art

recycled cardboard WIPs are coming along nicely! Yew!

a messy studio is a good studio

I make all my own stencils from drawing to cutting out the stencils by hand, this gives them my uniqueness and style that would otherwise be lost if I just copied a photograph, that is why I get paid the big bucks! (reference here to Dace Chappelle, who apparently doesn’t like bloggers lol)


💛❤️💚 and lastly an exciting development is this helmet which I painted for Canadian Olympic skeleton athlete hopeful Mirela Rahneva, my helmet art will be featured in publications across Canada and on CBC, I am very honoured and stoked to be a part of this wonderful story, more on that as things develop!

From the natural to the super natural, these are the universes and yes paintaverses I tend to find myself in.

featuring: Paintaverse 874538, Yuma Falls B.C. and the sacred garden Buddha located on Maui, what a gem of a place to sit and be still. The Buddha statue inspired the Buddha painting seen below in a ‘bursting with art’ studio, as I prepare for my Lost Art Exhibit Experience.

When I make art there many things that are on my mind. Knowing this I work at my concentration, even if the world is asking me to pay attention. To concentrate is to discipline the mind while remaining open to a myriad of possibilities, this applies to life and art, perhaps one and the same, perhaps something else we don’t know about, and thats alright with me.

I may make cosmic looking art but it is the natural world that keeps me grounded when required
