Mullen thinks a person has the right to their spiritual beliefs; he respects this, and believes there is something to glean from all peaceful points of view. Reflection of diverse philosophical viewpoints is to keep an open perspective of the world we live. In his still life portfolio of orchids and other floras’, his goal is to use the intense beauty found in the natural world as an expression of the effulgence that is seen in all things.
