Portfolio of Older Works
(page under renovation, tread patiently)

My work is and always has been about connections in an increasingly connected/disconnected world.

Having recently moved from big cities to the mountains of France, I have come full circle from an earth scientist, to an oil painter of urban scenes, to a digital painter of urban scenes, and now back to my roots as an investigator of our relationship with the natural environment, only this time with a paint brush and a blow torch. ​ I still love digital painting as a means of capturing fleeting moments, gestures, and expressions in time, usually en pleine air. However, it is increasingly technology that keeps us so disconnected, and dislocated from our surroundings, as we plunge deeper and deeper into the black holes caused by algortihms seeking our very souls. The rugged beauty of my surroundings call for mediums more organic and visceral. They call for a connectedness, and a renewed awareness of their fragility in the face of increasing challenges caused by our very disconnectedness. I invite you to join me on my journey of reconnecting to all that I am passionate about, and to all that furnishes us with our means to survive, and those moments of hope, and optimism to fuel us all forward on a more sustainable path.

Layered Moments

A moment has a history, a future, a context; to be savoured, to be lived.

Cuba

Artist Residency in Cuba to understand and investigate the US-Cuban narrative and how the Cubans find hope and joy in the face of ration cards, poverty, and dire political constraints. Colour, community, music…

Beneath the Surface

Narratives, dreams, challenges, memories, hopes, and the ever pulsating breath of Humanity...

Connections and Constructions 

Daily connections and constructions that bind and divide 2014-2016

The London Tube Series

The London Tube is a veritable microcosm of differences in culture, socioeconmic backgrounds, religions, languages--and yet--everyone is sharing a purpose (to get from one point to another), and often an armrest with often unlikely partners. This series explores the incongruous nature of these connections, and the hope that lies therein. 2014-2018
