Palms In Pai
Here is a favourite quote by Joseph Tuscan that I love:
Does a tree have any idea which direction to grow? No. It is aggressively open minded and grows in the direction which it can. It makes the most of opportunities that present themselves. One cannot predict how it will look and which direction it will grow, but it will be optimal given the circumstances because it adapted to its circumstances and didn't have a rigid plan it tried to impose on a changing world. If we do not let the world teach us, it teaches us a lesson.
Mountains and Marigolds
Lost under a canopy of leaves
Late Summer Sunflowers
Puffer Jackets By The Sea
This artwork is the portrayal of rhythm, gracefulness, and fluidity of movement. It is a dance between rose lace swirling ocean waves and a young girl splashing in the shallow water.
It is a celebration of poise, roses and the sea, with an orange and beige palette bringing warmth and energy to the scene.
Wild romance of lighthouses
Shadows Of Water
Lost In A Story
This digital illustration is based on a sketch of mine. It is inspired by both real and imaginary adventures and treasure maps. It is about the simple joy of being lost in a book where a whole storybook world comes to life.
Dwell On Lovely Things
This was a quick sketch I did one night while lying in bed. It is about those moments when negativity starts to descend like a thick cloud, hindering sleep. Instead of letting those thoughts grow, choose to dwell on lovely things.
The First Swim Of Summer
Summer is fleeting in the far south of the equator. There is tell tale signs that the much anticipated warmer days are about to start. Usually the wait feels too long. All I need is blue skies, the scent of summer wildflowers in the dunes and slightly longer days. The wait is over and I am ready to take the plunge.
I am fascinated with how social media and mobile phone behaviour is changing our society. In these portraits, the face is obscured by the phone, giving a thin veil of facial anonymity. I like this pose, as to me it also symbolises the take over of phones in our life and the erosion of face to face connection. It is of course also an effective way to photograph yourself wearing clothes, when you are both the model and photographer.
