New Exhibition this September…

I’m currently busy getting ready for our two-person show at the Eagle Gallery, Bedford next month, in which I will be displaying selected drawings and paintings that reflect my deep-rooted interest in our relationship with the Earth.

All my work involves story-telling in some way, and the colours I use express as honestly as I can the way I see who or what I’m painting. I aim to accurately depict the energy I sense.

I’m acutely aware that the chemistry from which human skin has evolved, for example, is also that from which the planet is formed. Even the paint I use comes from pigments and substances mined from the earth!

Our connection with nature goes far beyond recreation or fancy, being fundamentally based on science – but the stories that have been passed down through the ages to explain this chemistry have woven themselves into our history and Psyche. I paint people, landscapes and objects in a re-imagination of some of these myths and legends in order to show their relevance to the way life on Earth is changing now…
