folded and buried khadi papers, powdered paint flakes from walls of village huts,
antique woven and embroidered textile fragments, chalk, whitewash, mud stains,
thorns, mosquito netting, cowrie shells, coconut twine
We do not know until the shell breaks
what kind of egg we have been sitting on.
– T S Eliot
metallic automotive paint, acrylics, textured canvas, sanding, staining
Creativity is subtraction.
– Austin Kleon

recycled cardboard boxes, acrylic paint, Japanese washi, found object, sealing wax, linen thread
Forget your perfect offering
there is a crack in everything
that’s how the light gets in.

wooden slab, sawdust, iron staple, wood, nails, text fragments, cement, pva glue, acrylic paints
The mysterious wonder of life is that you just never know where anything is going. . .
– Alice Walker
acrylic on textured board, oyster-bed netting, slate roof-tile
The faculty of creating is never given to us all by itself.
It always goes hand in hand with the gift of observation.
And the true creator may be recognized by his ability to find about him,
in the commonest and humblest thing, items worthy of note.
– Igor Stravinsky
