I really do believe that she is…

A colourful translation of my photographic portrait ‘Grace at Nine’, featuring my beautiful daughter at 9 years of age, layered with my own textures (in this case, a macro shot of a Roman wall from the Roman baths at Bath) and a couple of blended layers tweaked with Photoshop filters :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!
