Self-Appointed Inspector of Donkeys and Rain Storms by 

It poured it down here in rural South Oxfordshire all day today, and I had to grab this shot quickly before my camera got a soaking…!

Walking through the storm and standing under the trees with my donkey friends, I was reminded of the rain storms and thunder storms quote from Thoreau…

I do believe myself to be ‘a self-appointed inspector of donkeys (ears) – and storms!’ ;o)

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!
