I live in New Zealand after spending fifteen years in the United Arab Emirates,originally from Dorset, U.K. I have enjoyed painting in oils since I was a teenager, I'm a proud possessor of a GCE Art "O" level pass certificate and studied art part time at Weston Super Mare Technical College - now I'm in my sixties and have more time to paint and hopefully improve my technique. I feel as photography captures landscape so well, I'm leaning towards more abstract work. I admire and enjoy the fusion, diversity,internationality, style, talent and versatility of all the artists on PIL, and find the site very motivational, inspirational, stimulating and lively with a constant and lively stream of new work coming in.
Art is a very personal thing and we all have different views and perceptions on the world - through art we can convey and share our own vision, views and perceptions and I love it.

Favourite Quotation:
"Future generations will be living in a world that is very different from that to which we are accustomed. It is essential that we prepare ourselves and our children for that new world.
