Interview for Yoga London

Art work
I make Art to express my thoughts and ideas.
My starting point is anything that I find myself turning over in my mind. Lyrics, Dreams, Poems and Radio 4 are all sources of inspiration for me.
My singer songwriter friend Jennifer Noxon has inspired a couple of pieces from her lyrics, for example my piece “We Fix our Smiles” comes from her brilliant song ‘Springtime in Paris’. http://www.myspace.com/jennifernoxonmusic
Our Big Men came to mind while I was listening to an article about the Palestinian’s and had a sad sense of the world becoming homogenised – the soul of multi-culturalism being gradually eroded. I had one of the first Palestinian Authority stamps that I had bought on a volunteer programme in the West Bank www.camdenabudis.net www.fobzu.net and had been looking for an honouring context in which to preserve it. I used a portrait of Ehud Olmert to symbolise one of “the big men”.
I have always had a tendency to find the tiniest thing precious and have gathered a myriad of treasures around me. As the collections grew I wondered how I could create a place for them that demonstrated the meaning I placed on them. They each have a voice in my work, communicating different aspects of the topic I’m exploring.
The meaning is not always clear in my work, each piece has a strong atmosphere that leads the heart and mind on its own little amble. My work often initiates connecting conversations with my clients as we explore what it evokes for both of us. It is a link to something deep that our busy lives often don’t leave space for and people hang my work in their living spaces to bring them back there.

Once all the components have been assembled, my work is carefully glued and stitched into place. I have become something of a glue expert. My work is held in private collections in Europe and the U.S. and permanently in www.skylarkgalleries.com
Each summer I teach Art on a Yoga Retreat in Crete. People come year after year to practise Yoga and re-connect with their creativity, some for the first time in decades www.yogaplus.co.uk.
