Influenced and inspired by the Australian Aboriginal paintings based on cave drawings, images on bark and then modern Aboriginal paintings being produced within the last 40 years ago.

At school, I had no interest in English Literature, let alone Shakespeare. I am now of a different opinion and marvel at these words produced so long ago and continue to have beauty. I respond to these words as story lines.
|The Underfall (ll), Bristol||
The Underfall is an area in Bristol harbour where boats are repaired and overhauled. There is a slipway. During the summer evenings, I use the Underfall as inspiration, initially, I painted and drew what I saw and then this developed into a series.
