I am interested in noticing 
what my experience is when out in nature. I just 
love being out and about, immersing myself in the wild spaces of Dartmoor, the coast and local farm lands. 

I sit and wait. My softly focused awareness notices qualities of energy, feelings and sensations moving in waves, patterns and rhythms, all arising, falling and passing away. Simply being, simply doing. This soft awareness enables me to catch the fleeting sensory qualities of light and colour that subtly affect and move me. The pulse of life.

My aim is to freely and spontaneously evoke these joyful, poetic moments in the Devon landscape rather than a literal view. I find these moments also often mingle with the piquancy of memories, both real and imagined, to create something mystical.
In my own contemplation of the pulse of the land, I invite you to reconnect with your own experiences of peacefulness, well-being and naturally exuberant vitality. All that is very abundant here in glorious Devon.

I am a finalist, with collaborating artist Jane Ellis, in the Devon Life Landscape Artist of the Year 2018 















                Life is a Journey not a Destination:

                In the spirit of the mystery, the Mystery of Spirit,

                to live is to live as variously as possible,

                to groom one's curiosity like a high-spirited

                climb aboard, and gallop over the thick, sun-struck
                hills every day.
                Where there is no risk, the emotional terrain is flat
                and unyielding, 
                despite all its dimensions, valleys, pinnacles, and

                life will seem to have none of its magnificent
                geography, only a length.

                but,what a savage and beautiful country lies in
                Author unknown.
