The vastness of the oceans, mistakes of navigation, discoveries of non existent seas and islands, along with actual experienced phenomena have been the catalysts for the much of my recent creative work. The themes of early ocean exploration are found through sources in old books, charts and actual voyages. These errors of navigation, illusory islands and imaginary discoveries have led to work seeking to examine the limitless possibilities of that which may or may not exist. They represent the journey of discovery that everyone takes through life. The work becomes a vehicle through which I can ponder the possibilities inherent in existence.
