‘Bacon’ and ‘Sausage’ – two lovely Glouester Old Spot brothers…

I spent many hours playing with and fussing these two before they ‘went away’. I found them to be intelligent, sensitive and endearing individuals. I am not ashamed to say that I wept the day they went off to slaughter. Our small farm manager clearly thought I was pathetic in the extreme, but if it hurts, better let it out, I say…

An expressionistic, exploratory artist, I create without restraint or intent. I am a passionate advocate of natural learning, and this organic approach informs all of my work, giving my creations their vibrancy and spontaneity. An abiding love of nature keeps me going when my rather warped sense of humour fails. Above all, I reject the dysfunction and pain our culture perpetuates. More of the same is of no interest to me. I say “YES” to that which is life-serving: let a new paradigm emerge!

    heehee and another hee (cos im giggling)

  • My daughter (then aged 7) named them ‘Bacon’ and ‘Sausage’ after one of them bit her on the bottom…!

    There were two more sets of ‘Bacon’ and ‘Sausage’ after these fellas – the last two were girls, but apparently the names still fitted :-O
