Inspiration for this series came to me shortly after I began studying martial arts. I have always been fascinated by the strength and beauty of Kung fu and mountainous abstractions dominated my artistic endeavours at the time and inspiration drawn Chinese art came into my process. I thought about the beautiful painted scrolls of mountains and landscapes that I had studies in university. These painting reflect a serenity that overtook me at this moment in my life. Kung fu is a fighting discipline but it has at it core a philosophy that teaches wellness through discipline, practice and meditation. These works came out of moments of calm and well being. They give a feeling of being able to accomplish dreams.
