The last fleeting rays of a last fleeting day of an ‘Indian Summer’ on the River Thames in Oxfordshire, England, and her last summer “in single digits”, she tells me…

Enjoy it all, Dearest – enjoy it while it lasts…

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!
