The artist’s task is to save the soul of mankind; and anything less is a dithering while Rome burns. Because of the artists, who are self-selected, for being able to journey into the Other, if the artists cannot find the way, then the way cannot be found.~Terence McKenna
Hi! Welcome to the POLYMATHIC TIMES & Artworks…
I am a polymath, which means I do lots of different things and have a vast range of interests. Though I only list above the things I’ve done or am doing professionally…there are many more areas of interest that give me a wide view of our world and culture. I believe the age of specialization is over, at least for the majority of us, and we must embrace our curiosity in many fields of interest.
My painting practice, which has now spanned over three decades, and the work that emerges from my experimentations, comes from somewhere that only abstract can truly explain.
I’m still learning what makes abstract a great genre for someone like me – emotional in temperament and driven by unseen things like love, fear, and passion; all the things that keep us alive, on the inside!

My impulse to work comes from somewhere that only abstract can explain.
Abstract art is the genre that gives the most agency to the mind of the viewer. I love that everyone sees something different and unique.
Colour is the language of Emotion. The line is the language of Intent.
I am inspired by beauty, the science of the small and the multitudinous interactions that form the basis of all life.
Future history can be written only in the present.

Got to laugh at it all… Because Bife is a L’all….right?
I began this new piece, which was originally drafted in charcoal on 15th August 2022, my 50th birthday! I know right!? I like to start a new work on my birthday and at Christmas; Solstices and Equinoxes may also be used as an excuse to do this. Why I think I still need an excuse […]
