Quetzalcoatl

Quetzalcoatl

Quetzalcoatl is a Mesoamerican deity whose name comes from the Nahuatl language and means “feathered serpent”. According to the Aztecs, Quetzalcoatl was related to gods of the wind, of the planet Venus, of the dawn, of merchants and of arts, crafts and knowledge. He was also the patron god of the Aztec priesthood, of learning and knowledge. All of these traits connect with my spirit... and I also really like dragons.

Ganesh

Ganesh

Ganesh is the very popular Hindu deity. I have depicted him with his traditional accoutrements. He holds an axe to cut off all bonds of attachment. The lotus flower symbolizes the realised inner self which is the highest goal of human evolution. A bowl of a modaka (sweet balls made of rice or wheat flour) symbolizes the immortality-bestowing, bliss-giving nectar of the crown chakra. And, on his outward palm is the Sanskrit symbol OM (the sacred syllable of the sound from which the world was created).

Peppery Perplexity

Peppery Perplexity

This is a painting that features a perplexed bunny who is compelled to pepper up his pet fish but unsure why and I’m not quite sure either. Painted thickly with vivid, blacklight-reactive acrylic, this painting is sure to be a conversation starter.

Something Fishy

Something Fishy

The term ‘’fishy’’ is thought to have originated from the notion “as slippery as a fish” and the character of this painting certainly seems to be plotting some shady deal. An appropriate piece to hang over the poker table (or in a government office).

Bovine Abduction II

Bovine Abduction II

The fascination that aliens have with cows is quite amusing (unless you are a cow). I first created a smaller (20 inch square) version of this painting in 2008. Years later I decided to recreate it at a larger (40 inch square) size. Sometimes the second time around is better than the first.
