My artwork reflects my interest in, my dogs - naturally, and Expressionism either in the abstract or figurative style. It is both personal and empathic and rather than explain each piece of art I rather like the viewer to form their own interpretation of what they experience both visually and emotionally.
My love of poetry also informs my work i.e.
'Childe Harold's Pilgrimage'
Gordon Byron 1788 - 1824
'There is a pleasure in the pathless woods
There is a rapture on the lonely shore
There is society where none intrudes
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar
I love not Man the less, but Nature more'
