Hi there,

Trying to find the right words for this has really made me think about what it means for me to be doing art... I mean, besides what all art is all about: Expressing yourself...; expressing a part of existence that perhaps you have a unique perspective on. Besides that, what am I doing? What kind of influence would I like my work to have in the world, if it had any at all?

The best answer for me, I think, is that I hope my work creates a sense of wonder in people... The kind of thing you have when you're a child, when everything is new... You know? To get that back again, but on a new scale... A scale at which our brains can handle so much more. For example, I started a while back with what I call the "Cosmos Project", where I'm creating one piece of art per episode of the Cosmos documentary, each piece inspired by the amazing science described in each episode...

If people love the art, and then go watch Cosmos because of it, that'd make me really happy.

And that is essentially it: Science and art. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a strong advocate for science and critical thinking, and so yes... I would love it if my art got people thinking more along those lines... Both appreciating science more for what it brings us as well as recognising the beauty and elegance of it.

So I'm here on Patreon, hoping to get your help so that I can do what I love more often. I'm an English teacher by day, which is what pays the bills but any support from you all on here would obviously go a long way to helping me be able to do more and more art.

And that's it... I hope you consider helping me. Every dollar counts.

Thank you very much for your time =)
