My work ‘experiential impressions’ explores all things…


Creating helps me make sense of the world and my experience!


My enquiry – an ongoing curiosity concerning how we can create a logically consistent self- identity; what are the tools worth having now from a philosophical perspective that give us access to ‘being closer to the truth about what’s real and what’s just going on’….I consider this a worthwhile exploration this lifetime.


Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that studies the fundamental nature of reality, the first principles of being, identity and change, space and time, causality, necessity, and possibility.
