I have done many things. Traveled, lived and worked in many countries, experiencing the uniqueness of different ecosystems and cultural diversity.

Working in the health/rehabilitation sphere for many years taught me the value of maintaining body vitality and a clear contemplative mind. Creative ideas tend to circle around the topic of the

life-force{  }embodiment interface. It's the concept of unity. Us with plants, topography, symbols and colored atmospheres. I like to map how humans can re-configure their bodies and spaces to find equilibrium. To align more with the invisible mystical matrix. To preserve nature, raw and wild. Ultimately its about reclaiming and reinvigorating our bodies and spaces as a microcosm of the earth. In so doing we evoke the memory of the depth of our unity with nature.
