My sweet, ball-obsessed little friend Jessie Dew-Drop the smooth-haired Jack Russell Terrier… Do you get the feeling she’s trying to tell me something? ;o)

Panasonic DMC-G3, shot in RAW format and developed in Lightroom 3 and Photoshop CS3. Macro textures added in CS3.

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!
