“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.”
― Joseph Campbell, A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living
Nature Connectedness is at the heart of my art and so I was compelled to create a portrait where both nature and self is a single entity. We have a primal need to connect with nature but with the rise of technology it feels as if the world is evolving to a place where there is an extreme disconnect between humans and nature so I created ‘Gaia’ as both a reminder and warning never to forget the power of nature.

Gaia is built from images that I photographed out of a train window in Switzerland. The image was created as a demonstration of how to retouch a portrait which you can read about here.
