Sandy the singing Shih-Tzu warming up for a performance (which actually was never given due to the rapid production of treats!)…

In loving memory of SandyMan (a.k.a. Danny), who had to leave me to go and be ‘radiant’ on 29th October 2013 … I still feel you, everywhere and nowhere, little man… I love you… xx

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!
