I could not believe my eyes when I discovered this…!

I am totally in awe of the beauty that nature creates from the materials provided by our throw-away culture: this is old paint that somebody had poured into (and onto) the top of a rubbish bin, decorated with additions from mother nature’s palette. Wow!

(No editing or manipulation – it really did look like this!)

Featured in The Art of Peeling Paint 04/11/2010

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!
