2011 was a very productive year for me, the impact has compelled me to keep creating new works and see what comes up. The whale and dolphin works were from a dream. To me it symbolizes moving through a recent illness of tonsil cancer, coming out the other side with the insight that these characters ‘the Kracked heads’ which I have created, have unlimited potential in the progression of my artworks. The resting place hut ‘Kracked heads’ is a work I created whist in the tropics in my time of recovery, beautiful waves and a Hindu medicine man to help me through. Staying in this hut onthe the beach surfing nice waves and eating good food was the best thing I could have done at this time in my life.
