a picture called shisha should be here...



I have always found smoke to be magical and mysterious.

When I moved to an area with a strong Middle Eastern community, a local Lebanese restaurateur taught me the proper way to enjoy the tradition of smoking hookah. Like finding images in the clouds, I discovered patterns and forms hiding in the flowing, swirling tendrils of smoke that drifted off the pipe.

I eventually took to combining pleasures, sitting and savoring the experience while keeping a sketchbook nearby. As I began to explore the concept of technology as an artistic tool, the sketchbook became digital and Shisha emerged from the fog.

While I no longer smoke cigarettes, I still allow myself the occasional pipe.
