For me it was always here,
the most part of being,
he curiosity which became creativity,
the way to connect,
to be truly alive and feel it deep inside.
Back in my childhood,
an inquisitive urge,
to explore and understand, creating and evolving,
through play and imagination. Learning how things,
become other things, watching something change,
growing from nothing at all, and becoming a tangible reality.
Growing up in Notting Hill in London during the sixties I was a
small boy surrounded by the vibrant buzz of an eclectic urban energy fuelled by the explosion of creative multicultural sensitivity.
The colours, the flavours, the sounds and the smells made my childhood world stimulating and exciting as it helped me grow.
Then the boundaries blurred , becoming a blank canvas in need of textures, colour, ideas and stories.
Creativity in all its many forms allows me to appreciate the things that catch my eye, to let the imagination unfold, to shape and evolve, finding fresh moments and reasons to keep on going.
It is both a release and an acceptance of the complications of being alive, of that vital ,shared , life experience.
To create and discover through artistic endeavour is for me the current which underlies the flow of life,
my breath in and out, each and every wonderful day.
I find inspiration through nature,
she guides me in a subtle illusive way.
I do not paint what i see,
but how it feels to me,
it's resonance, energy, delicacy.
Creativity and connectivity combine,
finding harmony and union ,
as one day becomes another,
as life unfolds.
