Then the more difficult part 'forgetting' everything one had been taught in order for it to dissolve into the melting pot, so that ones own way of painting Nature into Art can form, half from the outside world, and the other half using 'Active Imagination.' I agree with John Updike when in his capacity as art critic he wrote in Just Looking: 'Art Should body forth the idyllic.' Painting purchased for The Dartington Hall Trust Collection, (when on exhibition at The Plough Art Gallery, Torrington) Where it lives with works by Mark Tobey, Cecil Collins, Ron Atkin, Winifred Nicholson, Ben Nicholson, David Jones, Henry Moore, Jacob Epstein etc.

2 painting documentaries made one by a private filmmaker and one by BBC2 with a commentary by Harry Enfield.

Past Clients:The Dartington Hall Trust Collection, Totnes, Devon. The general public.
