My life to this point, like every image depicted here, is a culmination of years of experimenting with the concept of person-in-environment. It is a distillation of what it is that naturally promotes balance, both within and without our being.
For me, the essence of being is simply to be; being true to oneself, one’s identity, personality, and soul – this is elementary to our survival, it is the élan vital! We must find it from within; embrace it, cultivate it, and nurture it.
Like the Bodhisattvas, I have walked the roads of wealth and poverty; of feast and famine; of having and not having; and throughout it all what has sustained me, and resonated most resoundingly, was the desire to embrace just being who I am, naturally; without pretense, make-up, or identity crutches.
My life, my work, and this site are all designed to promote the belief that beauty, strength, and confidence comes from within, and that all the external manifestations, are simply a veneer, a mask that is erected to protect the truth, and uphold the fallacy.
In our technological world, rife with corrupt and obscure images and ideals of beauty, my message here depicted through these ads and images of my work, in its simplest form, is meant to encourage my viewers to pause for a moment from the impulse to iconoclasm, and remember to hold sacred the peace and sovereignty within the natural, beautiful, raw, YOU!
The message written in all my projects and endeavours, is to advance the idea of celebrating our natural beauty, and to advertise my intention to be this model – an archetype of this concept of truth and simplicity; going gracefully and naturally through life, with a healthy, natural diet, and the simple things that maintain balance and harmony, such as movement and activity; both mental and physical.
Remember always that everything you want to be is already within you…..you need only to release it!
