I woke at dawn to catch the sun
come rising up through everyone,
come fire within and light without
beneath my skin I lose myself.

Create Art;
Create Worlds

Our life experiences benefit so much from the freedom that creative arts can give us, as a internet enthusiast I see it very much also as the beauty that can colour our travels online.

These days, carving out a career in a creative industry requires artistic perspective, technical skill and an entrepreneurial spirit. I would encourage all creatives to follow their own projects if they get time as it is such a liberating and educational experience; our world thrives from the presence of art. In the words of Picasso, “art washes the dust of daily life off our souls and there are few greater things than that”.

Full colour illustrations fill each page.

Upon each soul I see a light
but yours I feel so pure delight,
stuns my thoughts and lifts my heart
it seeps right through and cuts inside.

Magic is alive so quiet and still
it lives this day and sleeps in you,
for all the roads you have to face
just know in you there is this grace.

Producing such a huge amount of art for a creative project like this takes a lot of dedication and project management. The final 140 page book includes large scale artwork with each page also available as large scale individual prints.

Height of a mountain

The ultimate coffee table book to dip into randomly.

The promised land always lies on the other side of a wilderness.

Out in the wild

The book aims to connect us with the mysterious wilderness.

The world is but a painting to our imagination.
Henry Thoreau

Lady of the lake

Evey page is emblazoned with imagination.

There she stood
her every touch;
she set a fire in me..
The universe alight
within her eyes
like an elemental dream..

Art is how we feel

The book is based upon random creative experiences and insights while painting and drawing nature mostly.

Art is what we see

Just a little paint

View of the sunlit sky – in all the book illustrations I have worked hard to convey my love for nature, those same feelings are expressed in music I make – enjoying open mic gigs where I have made lots of musical connections everywhere I go.
