" I truly believe in our current world that art is more important than ever. Art lives in the imaginal realm, where all is possible. In a world where hope is dwindling, art allows us to have hope. We need the dreamers more now than EVER before.
I encourage all art lovers to have a good look at what you are buying, you arent just buying a piece of art, you are buying the cumulative experience of an artists years of dedication to their craft and the collective hopes and dreams of humanity. A world without art would be a very bleak place and not a world I would choose to live.
I also love to teach art as I do feel that connecting to ones imagination isa major key to a balanced and whole life. I can be contacted about classes. "

My work is also about relationship with and within nature as a being in the world of form.

The most recent works have seen a further exploration of this theme in terms of how as individuals we are made up of the same elements as nature, how do the elemental forces of nature inform us of what it is to be human? What is it to live? This way of working is also informed by sexuality and what animates us.
Barbara Marx Hubbard talks about " supra sex" and how our primary/primal impulses can be utilised, transformed and directed into quite profound global change. I explore this constantly in my work and concur with her teachings.

Support the artists of this world.
