The Grammar of Inner Poetry

In honour of national poetry day, our senior designer Riz has created a series of illustrations to fit with this years theme: Refuge.

To my mind this is the mystical inner space, the inner refuge we are all gifted with. Knowing it and understanding it, is where we are most natural and ultimately magical.

My drawings and word making are a coalescence of a language and dialect still in the making. Part spiritual prayer, part a vision quest and part ritual healing. The journey I must admit is never predictable, but then that is the wonder of this landscape for me.

I believe It is where our most primal and ancient stories begin and shape our thoughts and understandings. At its deepest level for me, it has always been a place of lasting freedom, refuge, serenity, and shelter.
