What a couple of weeks. Flying out to Pori Finland for my exhibition with John Rogers at Galleria Elise. A great opening night and a brilliant response.

Back to Sheffield to do “LIVE ART” . Painting while Jim Ghedi and Neal Heppleston played songs from the forthcoming album “Satori ” . I named my piece “Satori” as I painted directly on to the wall at The Audacious Art Experiment.

Coming up next I will be exhibiting in the Great Longstone Art Show .

If you have time check out

Journey’s End:  “The Golden Eye of the Supreme”.


The inspiration for these paintings finds me seeking to break free of former ideas and concepts . “ Miles Beyond “ (2) was a breakthrough . Inspired by the space and freedom found in the intricate music I discovered the “zen calligraphy” that echoes through nature . Branches , star clusters, bird flight , winding rivers and horizons , leaf and stalk shapes. They are all around but we often miss their beauty and message.

I am fascinated by the relationship and energy found between the sky and the land and am seeking to express this interaction in abstract impressionism and other forms. Contact the artist about the Preview evening.
