One of millions of short-lived natural artworks created by Life on 12th December 2012. A joy to behold, and a privilege to photograph…and then they were gone forever…

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!

    Gorgeous! It’s almost enough to make me wish I lived somewhere that had frosts!

  • Hahahaha – if only they were as frequent as the grey, gloomy soggy stuff we get over here so often, it might almost be worth the move, Richard…………………..! ;0) Thank you for the great comment/compliments :o) x
