Bringing to my art pretty much who I am in my corner of the world I have looked to culture, people, the poverty of neglect, sorrows and the places and times of solace, and to nature.  My painting is about the play and study of colour, composition, materials, and form, working with the moods of abstraction primarily but I will also use realism for narrative, for people.  Recent watercolours have been about colour, light, gesture through landscape study.  The sculpture has refered to the organic, often animals, birds, as seen through abstraction.  I’ve been lucky to practise art  which I have shared with my family and acquaintances, with those who go to the galleries I’ve shown in, with those who purchase or accept gifts, and those who find it online.   I thank you all for your attention.
