”It may be true that preoccupation with time has been the downfall of Western Civilization, but it can also be argued that conjecture about eternity is a waste of time!” said Quentin Crisp.

Time seems of little importance when you are tuning in on a painting at 3am in the morning with half the population asleep. Our creations are manifestations of our souls as we experience the evolution of a piece. Each stroke transcends time and space.

As an artist, occasional writer and dabbler in photography and film I have been living in the creative sphere for most part of my life. I am in love with my environment, my world and the human state especially the female psyche, both solipsistic and interpersonal. I often fuse myth and reality with symbolism and storytelling in a variety of mediums.

Also known as Jinndow, I live in Melbourne, Australia and I am an Australian however I am first and foremost a citizen of the Earth and a humanist with a love for humanity and its different cultures.
