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.

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.

Spirit of Spring

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.

The mountains I had to climb make it back into the studio…

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 […]
