artists & authors. one & the same?

Are all artists storytellers? Are all authors artists?

In my world, they are.

I like to create images that tell a story, that come from a story, that are part of a story. Their own story. One that changes each and every time one looks at the art work. A story that contains a part of you, that expresses you.

The stories should be ‘strange’ and ‘surreal’, not adhering to stereotypes.

The characters should be multi-layered…like a ‘diva’ that is composed and elegant on the outside but is hiding a tempestuous personality within. Or like a lily that is a flower that flies in the air pretending to be a butterfly when no one is looking. These are but mere examples of the hidden dimensions of the persona/nature.

I like to write books that read like a painting. The pages become the canvas filled with Layers, Colors, Depth, Suggestion, Meaning. I like stories that have depth, that play with words, with concepts, with perception.

Outside the Box is the motto.

Outside the Box or Surreal doesn’t necessarily have to appear disturbing, nor does it have to be ‘weird’. It can be eye candy loaded with depth and meaning to those that can see. But then again it could be absolutely strange and defy all logic. Why not?

Unleash your logic. Unleash your mind.

Welcome to The Studio.

Artwork. Wordwork.

Enjoy.

“Blessed are the weird people:
poets, misfits, writers
mystics, painters, troubadours
for they teach us to see the world through different eyes.”- Jacob Nordby
