David Collis


My life was an unplanned walk-about that didn’t unfold as expected. I wanted one thing but received another. Questions shaped it instead. Revelations inspired it. Awakenings expanded it. Curiosity fueled it.

I traveled the world, explored sacred places, and searched religious and mystical traditions. The ‘intelligence’ of my hands built houses, furniture, cabinets, and coupled with my artistic personality created abstract art. The motto I’ve acquired: “Life is remarkable; be ready for surprises, and nimble for the unexpected.”
