This is the first time I have attempted to echo my own artwork in poetic form. The poetry in this book has been inspired by an obsessive desire to search out my inner most thoughts and feelings from my everyday life experiences.
Some of the words are based on my own feelings but most are just life moments & observations that we all have experienced at one time or another.
The artwork in some cases was developed with a definite purpose in mind and others were developed through a process of exploration & experimentation. These are the artistic endeavors I enjoy the most.
The combination of my poetry and artwork hopefully leaves enough room for the reader of this book to explore my perspectives and also draw on his or her own interpretations & introspective viewpoints.
In my travels around the world I am always on the lookout for interesting subject matter. As a professional videographer, cameraman and a graphic design graduate of the Ontario College Of Art In Toronto Ontario, I have acquired a large of amount of visual elements that I can later combine and use in interesting ways to express what I felt at the time I captured that perfect moment with my camera. I enjoy searching for new material and can't wait to get back home to explore the new potential that computer technology has brought to creative expression.. All my work is original throughout the combined medias I use and completely hand painted and executed by use of the electronic pen and a wacom tablet. The incredible brushes that can be assigned to this pen can simulate the painting feel and action of watercolor, oils, pastels, you name it but the expression itself is still in the control of the hand and the eye of the creator for the enjoyment of the beholder.
