My gift from an early age was visual representation, and my passion has been how to carry the complexity of life with a simple loving presence. This passion took me inward with my art for a long time, examining my own experience and experimenting with many different ways of gathering emotion, spirituality, thought, memory, inspiration and the detailed beauty of the visible world into a single coherent image. I felt that such images helped me move more confidently within life’s many layers. Long experience of teaching, study of many psychological and spiritual approaches, and a training in hypnotherapy helped me to understand also what would most help others to realise and enhance their own unique paradigm. My work with Sacred Paintings and Biographical Portraits arises directly out of this lifelong passion.
