My Philosophy is that nature is the greatest artist and I draw my inspiration from the wonderful abstract / contemporary designs that are naturally conjured up. I also enjoy taking a bird’s eye view of these natural phenomena’s and portraying them on canvas.
Like Fred Williams and Sydney Nolan, and William A. Sutton, I am very much preoccupied by the aerial view. Having done a lot of flying over the various continents getting to and fro, Europe and America, I have been fascinated by the wonderful designs of nature.
