Rose in Blue - gallery


My point of view...


This is the section of my private Gallery, a place to show you some of my pictures and let you read a selection of my poems. The philosophy around them comes from reflection on both the paintings and the poetry which usually come first! Having been spared a conventional life-pattern, my thinking moves in many unusual ways, making connections where there appear to be none.

To be an artist is for me to be free to create, to move and to change, taking the liberty of not being today what I seemed to have been yesterday. My calling to become an artist took me through various stages. It took me a long time before I could call myself an artist which now I believe that I have always been. Life itself has guided me to a variety of sources for study and inspiration, the most important being the artistic work itself.
