A 3 a.m. trip to the bathroom “turns into something beautiful…!”

Original photograph of my bathroom window in the wee small hours, layered with enhancements including my own handmade additional bokeh.

An expressionistic, exploratory artist, I create without restraint or intent. I am a passionate advocate of natural learning, and this organic approach informs all of my work, giving my creations their vibrancy and spontaneity. An abiding love of nature keeps me going when my rather warped sense of humour fails. Above all, I reject the dysfunction and pain our culture perpetuates. More of the same is of no interest to me. I say “YES” to that which is life-serving: let a new paradigm emerge!

    This is absolute magic! Exquisite beauty!

  • Aww, thank you, Ainsley – it was really cool seeing it turn into what I saw as I played about with it on-screen…it’s wonderful to be learning enough about post-work that I can start to bring such things to life in the digital realm and share them with other people ;o)
