I'm very excited to being taking part in the Arts Trail - it has given me the opportunity to exercise my artistic instinct. My work is largely experimental at this stage and is in a state of evolution! The pieces on display in my home are mostly acrylic paintings. My daughter, Freya, has a series of photographs (some framed) on display.
Also see Hannah Stewart.
Lovely paintings, drawings and textiles depicting favourite objects, flowers and kitchenalia.
My artwork is inspired by ideas from science, psychology and philosophy, which I combine with an experimental approach to materials to explore what it means to be human and the nature of reality. Recent work has focussed on the idea from neuropsychology that says our view of the world is mostly constructed as a model in our minds.

I am committed to explore and develop art and expression from the deep inner soul from meditation and spiritual healing.
I have moved from New York to Bristol in the last year and now have my painting studio at Paintworks.
My paintings are usually a combination of prayer and painting. The icons I do are done in the Byzantine tradition of using egg tempera paint on wooden panels with gold leaf gilding. I'm a member of the British Association of Iconographers and I teach iconography in my studio.
I work mostly in acrylics, but also use watercolour & mixed media. My inspiration is mostly from the natural world both in this country & abroad. Recently I have been working in a more abstract way
& this is starting to interest me more & more.
I grew up in Devon, on the edge of Dartmoor and have always loved the moorlands and coasts of Devon and Cornwall, where many generations of my family have lived and worked. These places still have great resonance for me and provide much of the inspiration for my work.
My works are inspired from my journey towards understanding the meaning of life.
The arts works are oil paintings mainly abstracts. They are colourful and bright. My continued search about why we are here, what are we doing in this universe and where we are going are reflected in my works.
Lets celebrate our existence and continue our questioning while we exist.
