This is what I do. No matter what you think about me, how well you think you know me, or what I say, none of it will change the fact that this is what I do. I work with heart and mind in alignment. All the bullshit, all the pressures, the anxieties, the confusion, the ups and downs will ever change what I do. I am an artist, that is the role I play. This is what I do. I choose Mahaloness, I will continue to follow my dream, no matter what, automatic. I make marks, beautiful marks, with beautiful colours, this is what I do, when my time comes, I am aware that the work I make, the art, will carry my light. You want to judge me, you want to doubt me, you want to humble me, go ahead. You want to see me fail, I say to you that I will continue to bloom. I am deep into my work, going 10 years straight, working at it every day, and for better or for worse it has been my choice and I accept that. I paint, I photograph, I write, I build sculpture, I make art. I channel spirit, if you are unfamiliar with spirit or question spirit than this is your choice, and that’s okay too. I am aware of the impact I am making, and as long as I am aligned with love and compassion, than the work I do is exceptional. When the storms roll in and toss me around than the work turns chaotic and flow can be difficult. It doesn’t mean I give up, even if the universe is a beast and wants to eat me up, I am a satyagraha, a peaceful warrior and will overcome all obstacles. I am Mahaloness. I just want to be free, I just want to bring light into the dark times we are in. What else am I to do, I don’t know. I just want to be free, I just want to see my dream through and share it with you. Even in my darkest moment I will shine within. I will find solace in fulfilling my dream, and deliver my beauty, automatic. I am here on Earth to be of service, you want to eat me up, use me up, manipulate me, and challenge me, go ahead, I will smile within and send you love and compassion. I just want to be, I just want to dream, I just want to love and be loved, I just want to live by living and reach out to those who find struggle within. I am aloha, I am joy, I am your friend even if you are my enemy. I will not wait, I will not plan, I will not follow the directive that you give to me, I chose this path and will follow it through with or without your approval, I will love you even if my humanness gets in the way, beyond the superficial, emotional, I am a light being, filled with verve, here to do my work, the good work, the path of Mahaloness.
Fotografica Mahaloness are visual clues I leave, some portray the art, some the energy that feel, the flow that flows through me, channeling creative spirit. I will see it through, if you are an art dealer and you want to pick me up, pick me up. I just want to make art, okay.
The sun and the clouds. I made a sculpture from beach debris at a place called cove near Paia, 2 little kids walked by, they were around 5, as they passed they said to me ‘that’s cool’, the work did what it was meant to do, if a wave came and took it away than I would also say that the ocean loved it too. The paintings are my abstract work, when I travel to a place and there is a lot of stimulation, I tend towards abstract, it is more true to the moment, and channels pure energy without the aid of symbols. The Mona Lisa was painted on the sunshine coast BC it was made on floatsam, sea debris, she is the Sunshine Coast incarnate. Kissing turtles on recycled tike meant for the dump transformed into Mahaloness gold.The green and orange/red picture are energy photos, part of my photografica collection. If you like what you see let me know, especially if you are in a dark period, I can help to the best of my ability. love and compassion is best shared. If you are an angel funder and you like what you see, become a patron, it is never too late, and if you have to make excuses than carry on.
