Almost 10 years ago, I was busy with a consulting career where patterns of organization design and behaviour were my subjects. I stepped into the artistic realm to explore visual patterns of lines and shapes in the garden, in landscapes, and in the macro world of flowers, plants and nature. These images are contained in Portfolios such as Marvelling the Mushroom, Flowerography and Garden Explorations. They focus on the delicate beauty of the floral, garden and natural realm - in their petals, seeds, leaves, stems and bark, and in the compositional beauty of gardens.
In the urban world, I create abstract images from the scratches, bumps, and bruises in the environment. This is where peeling paint, rust and decay blossom into new forms to create the Urban Extractions Series, In-significance and Whimsy in Rust. These are abstract images that are all the more fascinating when their origin is known.
