The Strange Effect of Light

‘My influences are the bees that sting me, the midges that bite me and the birds that sing so sweetly’.

After years of working as a commercial artist I wanted to rediscover why it was I went to Art College in the first place ~ my love for nature and the things that occur in the countryside that surrounds me, the stories that I see and experience daily. While I love the individual beauty of the smallest insect or the blackest crow their folkloric myths and characteristics interest me the most ~ the arrival of the lapwings in spring or the nocturnal venturing of moths, the bees thirst for nectar or the intricate construction of a nest. This small world ~ a few feet of meadow or the hole in a tree is the back drop for my own artistic safari.I hope to convey this passion and bring all viewers of my work a glimpse into the province beneath their feet or the habitats that surrounds their homes.
