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!

    Excellent! Such gritty color.

  • Thanks, Pete – it came from the side of a small, derelict digger (the lettering used to say ‘construction’ once upon a time, I think…!) so no doubt it’s seen its share of grit during its lifetime – and then it went and died, purely in order to increase the grittiness just for us grunge connoisseurs, of course :-)
