Horn Dance I

My creative inclination arose during early childhood, although it was not allowed to come to fruition until the early 1990s.  Never having the opportunity to go to art school because of a congenital heart condition, I am mostly self taught, having but a few pieces of encouragement from some wonderful wildlife artists.

Living high on the Welsh mountains surrounded by Red Kites and Buzzard and a plethora of bones and skulls left by nature, I began painting in earnest. When relocating to London I began looking for something that would make the metaphor real and began to paint the more hidden areas of the centre of flowers. Where I am now, with a studio high up in Parndon Mill on the River Stort, I can let my journey go in which ever direction it wishes and who knows where it will take you. My inspiration comes from artists such as O’Keeffe, Fini, Khalo, Carrington -  all women surrealists - as well as nature in all its wonderful guises. I look for that ineffable hidden mysterious thing within a subject and paint it big to enable the viewer to experience something special, to be surrounded and immersed by it all.
