After being a passive observer and lover of art I feel very lucky to be painting. My living of life and love of colour feeds it. 

 

Without formal art education, learning by doing- working alongside artists in Patagonia, Easter Island, The Galapagos Islands, Cuba, Cornwall and Spain.

 

I use my creative exploration in other ways, and am an inventor- currently taking my first product to market with Lime Banana Ltd.

I once imagined my next breath was my last. It's an interesting thing to do.
