I love playing with paint, pencils, paper, wood, glass, fabric, found objects, wool, feathers, ribbon, silk, clay, stone, metal, rope, light and colour.  

Inspiration comes largely from the wild elegance of nature: cloudscapes, the play of light on water, the quiet beauty of plants, the endless wonders of the animal world, the sound of wind in the trees.

The act of art-making has, for me, become a kind of prayer / desperate plea for the continuing survival of the many and diverse species that make up our precious, wild ecosystems.
