Drunken Thinker Under Construction
Inspired by meditative practices and the commitment it takes to become a master of meditation. Meditative practices strip us of our egos and allow us to feel great compassion for humanity as a whole. Many thoughts and feelings arise during meditative practice and at times you can feel drunk with peace of mind and a calmness in your heart.

Kinetic Matrix Series 1.0 - 9.0
Get out your 3D glasses! This series is an artistic interpretation of the evolution of cardiac regeneration. The first 3 images are based on cardiac CT views. The remaining 6 images were created by combining anatomical markers from the first three base images, resulting in symmetrical, alien designs of the human heart. The inspiration of this series was twofold. 1) Science fiction which is now coming to fruition in this age of advancing medical technology, research and innovation. 2) New advancements in stem cell therapy for cardiac regeneration including the “ghost heart”, which is a heart scrubbed clean of all cells, leaving a protein scaffold on which to build a new human heart. These artworks are 3D anaglyph images, which should be viewed through red/cyan 3D glasses for full 3D effect. When viewed through 3D glasses, the hearts appear to be alien space ships floating in space.

Thuban
Thuban is a pale, yellow star in the constellation Draco. It was the Pole Star 5,000 years ago when the Egyptians were building the pyramids. It's history includes a vast number of ancient mythologies and modern conspiracy theories. Including the theory of the reptilian alien species, the Draconians, who apparently hail from the Alpha Draconis star system. These reptilian aliens are said to be expert geneticists who possess a level of technology that far exceeds today’s human technology including the ability of interstellar travel. An absolutely ridiculous theory to say the least, but it was the inspiration behind this artwork.

Circulate
LGBTQA+ individuals are almost 3 times more likely than others to experience a mental health condition such as major depression or generalized anxiety disorder. The fear of coming out and being discriminated against for sexual orientation and gender identities, can lead to depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, thoughts of suicide and substance abuse. Stigma, prejudice, and discrimination impacts the mental well-being of the individuals who face this oppression.

Taste
What happens to our brain when we get a taste of something which brings us pleasure? Whether it be food, sex, drugs or alcohol — they all have a similar hijacking effect on your brain. Pleasure is driven by the release of a range of neurotransmitters in many parts of the brain, but dopamine release in the brain’s reward system is particularly important. Dopamine release tells the brain when to expect something rewarding, modulates how rewarding it will be and drives us to seek rewarding things. All drugs of abuse from nicotine to heroin, no matter their primary mode of action, release dopamine. Other rewarding experiences – sex, food, and gambling – are also associated with increases in dopamine release. Fortunately, most addictive patterns are completely reversible and there is hope for a better brain and life.

Re-Entry From Orbit
The Astronauts experience of re-entry through Earth’s atmosphere. You leave the floaty fun of microgravity, crammed next to your crewmates inside a tiny capsule, which plummets through the harsh atmosphere of Earth. Fiery plasma streaks outside your window. You feel the heat through your bulky suit. At the end of the atmospheric re-entry, you start hearing the noise of the wind and the sound. You're almost breaking the sound barrier. You make it through the fire only to have your freefall aborted by the abrupt opening of a parachute. And you make it through that, in turn, only to make a harsh collision with the hard ground of Earth—via a "soft landing". Which is far from “soft”.

Remixed Anatomy Series
The human body is considered bilaterally symmetrical, in that, it can be divided through the midsagittal plane, creating two equal parts. However, these parts are not mirror images of each other and despite the general duality of our external architecture, our internal anatomy is asymmetrical in design. "Remixed Anatomy" examines an alien presentation of human anatomy displayed in an absolute symmetrical form.

The Spirit of Vesalius
The work of Andreas Vesalius inspires my creative process immensely. He was an anatomist, physician, and author of one of the most influential books on human anatomy, De humani corporis fabrica. Page 190 was the inspiration for this artwork.
