My early abstract work draws on 10 years spent in Africa while more recently my present home in Norfolk and frequent visits to Australia have provided a new and exciting source of images. Collecting impressions and subsequently working with these, I attempt to understand my place in these disparate worlds. Each location brings with it its own special spirit, colour and textural palette. Over time these sources are filtered through my imagination and emerge with a dreamlike quality, sometimes much later, hinting at layers of history, geology and culture. I offer a contemplation of my relationship with these special places; a sense of time passing, of ancient cultures and peoples on the move in an ever changing landscape.
