I have always loved and done art since an early age. Visual Arts have been a passion that I was lucky enough to have a career in. Drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and ceramics are areas of interest and expression. Land and sea have been a source of inspiration for my work lately. The act of perception, abstraction process, imagination and colour are key elements in producing ideas and work. The actual bat was a starting point, its grain marks contributed to the development of the idea. The space was restrictive but a solution. Intuition, imagination and memory plays its part as a message/develops. Cricket starts innocently but has developed into something that is commercial, enjoyed by young and old, traditional and corrupt. Innocence is lost! Die Sports Bet, alcohol advertising……… Saying this is not intended to influence your enjoyment of this art work!?
