As I was creating the paintings, I was also creating magic objects - magical tools for magical purposes. It was the exact same process which created both the paintings and the artefacts, and I made the comment on the energy art group that if I was exhibiting, I would exhibit both the paintings and the artefacts as they belong together.
The Adventures of The Mens - an art project which began in 2015 and is still evolving ...
A large part of my work is to make Rosetta diagrams and illustrations. These are images without words to accompany the translations of training manuals into many different languages. Here are some of my favourites.
The Mens have their own kid's book!

Can a Mens go to Antarctica ...?
One of the core features of Modern Energy Art is definitely "the breaking down of the old barriers." Normal people are shockingly disconnected from art - from doing art (you need to be brainwash ... ahem, you need to study first for god alone knows how long before you get to call yourself an artist), to owning original art (that's only for rich/crazy people) and so many others beside.
Here is the story how the mens got into energy painting, energy art and art solutions and their very own energy art exhibition of their very own energy paintings! (And one sculpture!)
Collectively, they call themselves THE ARTMENS :-) - here is their work.
Knowing that the first generation of modern energists would be gathering at the View Hotel in Eastbourne, UK, on November 11th 2016 for the first ever official Guild of Energists conference, I decided to make a special mens as a gift for each delegate.
The mens were made with lots of sparkles and when they were all on the tray together, it occurred to me that they were "The Little Energists" :-)
7 important things you need to know about the care and feeding of the mens, if you have mens in your life.
Ah ... the mysterious mens! Are they art or are they magic? Are they tools or are they toys? Where did they come from and where will they go? These and many other questions ... :-)
