Allegories

I have always believed that art is a combination between communication and craftsmanship. The series "Allegories" was my first attempt to harness control of both aspects.I also wanted to create a series of art that would convey an optimistic message to the viewer, believing that art can be used as a vehicle for inspiration. I decided to choose five virtues that I find are necessary to make a good person and illustrate them through five mandala like watercolours. In each frame there would be an animal, colour, pattern, hand, and flower that would be symbolic of the virtue they represent. This series was by far my longest running body of works, but it was definitely a labour of love.
