This work sings about my soul nourishing love affair with nature. I love to immerse myself in the seas and rivers and streams of Devon, at least when the weather is warm, and to ramble in the woods. A beautiful day for me involves foraging, sketching, or sitting around a fire with friends as the silky darkness descends. So when I can, I like to get out of the city and head 100 miles down the road south-west. Much of my work is inspired by these wild and soothing, colourful, lush, constant yet ever-changing places.
Some of these images are inspired by times spent at Gaia House, a meditation retreat centre in Devon. Right now I’m collaborating on a book of images and poems with the poet River Wolton and a few of these paintings will appear in our forthcoming book “Betweenity”.
