It is like clouds rising in the sky: suddenly there, gone without a trace.
And it is like drawing a pattern on water: it is neither born nor passes away.
This is cosmic peace and eternal rest.
When it is enclosed, it is called the matrix of the realization of suchness;
When it emerges from the enclosure, it is called the cosmic body of reality
. Ma-tsu

“*Another Season”, tells us how quickly time moves on…suddenly there, it’s gone without a trace…don’t wait…live now, embrace the time before it passes…a melding of abstraction and realism, the trees stand like sentinels to withstand the changes that inevitably arrive with every season*

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
