There's something really great about being an artist and experiencing a time where you can work without influence. I am experiencing that pleasure right now and exploring what it is I would like to focus on to amount a body of work that is unrelated to my last 7.5 years of pained life.

Study has been wonderful with Jeff Makin for many reasons, and I intend to resume with it just as soon as I have some reliable capacity so I'm not throwing out my luscious paint and having to clean brushes for a few minutes of activity! One of the very enjoyable aspects of study has been revisiting simplicity. Keep it simple Jeff says and [...]

The press release below explains this show perfectly. I do have to add a huge thanks however to three dearest people, Theo, Lynn Savery and Michelle Caithness.
