The Broken Earth Series:

How does one face a white canvas, as an artist? When all around us the earth we occupy, has broken in two… Gone! Thus the reason for my series of paintings:

  1. The tree of Life: With the crumbling soil beneath its roots, it stands fruitless.

2. The bonds that bind us: Families move on. Ties have been broken as we watch them blow softly in the wind.
