Thrilling kids on Wallingford’s Kinecroft one day, terrifying Afghan kids the next…Puma Helicopter from RAF Benson in South Oxfordshire doing a PR stunt to the delight of local families before deployment in the Middle East.

Although because it is (apparently) used purely as support for ground forces the Puma is not armed, presumably it carries those who are? A very uncomfortable sight for me – interesting in one respect to see this machine and her crew up close, but sobering and chilling to realise how very, very scary a sight it must be if deployed against you…

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!

  • Thank you, Paul – I had to wait most of the afternoon to get this shot! Very bizarre for me living this close to a base full of killing machines… and they all seem so friendly ;o) x
