Juxtapositions of art and the spoken word alter the perception and experience of both.
It is with great joy that I have once again been able to collaborate with Iranian-American poetess Bahareh Amidi, currently based in Washington D.C.
Bringing together her poem "Shedding Light" and my artwork "Heightened Awareness" we share a message with the world.

Today, finds me back in the UAE after almost three years. I am on a special journey - one which began when I decided to apply for the Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival 2022.
I have been preparing for this journey since I heard that two of my works had been selected for the festival. The festival begins next week and I will be sharing often on social media while on this visit to the UAE. In the mean time I would like to share with you a piece that I have written about this year’s special edition of the festival and my participation in it.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mariska at World Art Dubai and not too long after that Mariska asked me if she could interview me for her Youtube channel.
Mariska and I became friends over the years before I left for Canada and she for Australia, and we still keep in touch.
It was a pleasure to be interviewed by her:
