Facing Mara
Mara, often referred to as the 'Lord of Death', is one of the earliest non-human beings to appear in Buddhist scriptures. He is the ruler of desire and death, the two evils that chain humans to the wheel of ceaseless rebirth.

Nosferatu's Feast Series

The Matrix Series
This series of paintings was inspired by brain-computer interface (BCI) technologies.  A BCI is a direct communication link between an enhanced brain and an external device. BCIs acquire brain signals, analyze them, and translate them into commands that are relayed to output devices that carry out desired actions. BCIs are utilized in the fields of rehabilitation for repairing human cognitive or sensory-motor function, assistive technologies, and augmented realities such as virtual reality.  Will this technology bring humanity a new and enhanced neuroreality? Can the mind connect directly with artificial intelligence, robots and other minds through BCI technologies to transcend our human limitations? How close are we really to successfully connecting our brains to our technologies? And what might the implications be when our minds are plugged in?

Rooted
The idea for this painting came from looking at tree branches blowing in the wind. There are many similarities within human anatomy and nature. Thus, I wanted to create a painting which displays a human heart using colours which are synonymous with foliage and nature. I used earthy hues and abstract design to make the heart one with the background.

Glitch

Respire
This painting depicts COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). I incorporated a glow with splashes of colour to the lungs. These two methods symbolize treatment for lung disease. Dedicated to the clinicians in the Lung Transplant program at Peter Munk Cardiac Centre, Toronto General Hospital and to the patients whose lives are impacted by lung disease.

Anguish
This painting was inspired by my work with patients who have received a LVAD (Left Ventricular Assist Device). The style of this painting is based on medical imaging of the heart. Within the hearts, the shadows represent heart failure and the colours represent heart health and recovery. This painting is dedicated to heart failure patients and our amazing team of clinicians in the Heart Transplant and Cardiovascular Surgery programs at Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC) in Toronto. It was donated to PMCC Foundations for use in a fundraising event for the heart failure program.
