Edinburgh Festival

A wonderful day spent with Ellis on his 8th birthday and first time at the festival….. enjoying the magic, noise and absolute chaos of the performers and visitors on the Royal Mile and the wonders of Dynamic Earth……itching to spend his birthday money on anything and everything.  We couldn’t finish our massive American style burgers  […]


Progressing with the stick paintings and adding gold flakes for a touch of drama……seems to work well and am happy with the overall impact it gives the images.  These paintings are based on all manner of important things that are disappearing from our environment…….Trees, coral, fish, plants, insects, animals …..the list goes on and on […]


Experimenting with sticks as opposed to brushes for new series of paintings. Trying out all sorts……. from broken canes to pampas grass to kebab sticks. Its a bit like Shibori dyeing as you cant predict exactly what its going to turn out like…….always a surprise, one way or another.        

Japanese Garden 2

Peace and tranquility at the Japanese Garden just outside the village of Muckhart.   Currently helping Kate along with several others to keep it looking beautiful.
