"If a discerning eye cannot visualise the sea in a drop of water,
or the whole in a part,
then it is not an eye, it is a plaything."

My Inspirations -

Allah the Infinite, the Most Magnificent, Most Loving, Most Inspirational.

"Imagine a kind of love that is the power of intention, the very energy that is the cause behind all of creation. It's the spiritual vibration that carries divine intentions from formless to concrete expression. It creates new form, changes matter, vivifies all things, holds the cosmos together beyond time and space. It's in everyone of us. It is what God is."

(from The Power of Intention by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer)

"What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god: the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals -"

(from Hamlet by William Shakespeare)

"You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly."

(Rumi)

"I rest not from my great task! To open the Eternal Worlds, to open the immortal Eyes of Man inwards into the Worlds of Thought, into Eternity, ever expanding in the Bosom of God, The Human Imagination -"

(from Jerusalem by William Blake)

"I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
My God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold, I shall call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies."

(from Psalm 18, verses 1-6)

"I am as my servant thinks I am. I am with him when he makes mention of Me. If he makes mention of Me to himself, I make mention of him to Myself, and if he makes mention of Me in an assembly, I make mention of him in an assembly better than it. And if he draws near to Me an arm's length, I draw near to him a fathom's length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed."

(from Hadith Qudsi, no: 15 )

Note from the Artist -

As an artist I am captivated by the endless beauty of the natural world in all its glorious manifestations. Everywhere I look I see future paintings and limitless possibilities.

During the painting process I feel all the brilliant colours, daring shapes, trying to translate emotions and thoughts onto canvas.
