I was making the environmental paintings at the time I began to come to Roaming.  It was something like a political statement I was making, the way I felt about the state of the environment that we’re living in, and how we could challenge the government to boycott the multinational companies and think about what we are doing to the environment, and learn to grow our own food, learn to do things on a local scale, accept others’ differences, no matter what they look like.  We can put things right if we put our minds to it, and to create local communities in the land in self-efficient dwellings rather than concrete houses everywhere, living with respect, living side-by-side with nature. And to create a vegan lifestyle that will save the planet, because I am already a vegan.  It would make people think how to tread more lightly on the earth. 

I paint because I feel people need to wake up and realize that the environment they’re living in is disappearing because of modernization.  Because travel is cheap, people fly in planes that ruin the environment.  They don’t need to do it, and it’s causing damage to our environment.  It’s filling the air we breathe with poisonous gasses.  It’s hanging over us, creating a smog, and people are breathing it in.  It’s causing illnesses, and all sorts of mysterious illnesses.  A lot of people are suffering from it.  The same thing goes for nuclear power.  It’s getting to the fish.  It’s causing deformities in people.  Chopping down the rain forest is causing destruction in the environment because those trees are there for a reason, to stop pollution from getting out of control.  When you chop all the trees down, it makes the air unbearable.  It heats the environment, and it cause ozone damage.  The ozone layer is bigger in Australia.  People can see it.  There’s more damage there.  It’s taking the zinc out of the soil. 

We have to think of eternity, of how we can save the environment, and treat Mother Earth with the respect and love we would give our children.


White Mountain, 2013

I used oil paints.  When you look at this painting, and you walk up to the top of a mountain, how do you feel?  Do you find yourself reaching for that goal in your life?  If so, what would be your goal if you reached the top of the mountain?  Would it be wanting to change the world for all humanity, or change yourself into a respected being, to treat your earth with respect? 


Black Mountain, 2013

A feeling of stillness fills the air, a feeling that you’ve been at this island before. 


Mythical Castle

When you look at the painting, you feel a closeness to nature like riding horseback, and a feeling that you’ve been there in your past life.  It takes you to mythical lands and landscapes.  Arcadia, a majestic, magical landscape.  

Dream Cottage

Where I’d love to be, in the middle of nowhere, far from the madding crowd.


Waterfall near one Tree

Tree overlooking a waterfall and wildflower meadow.  If more farmers gave land over to wildflower meadows, there would more wildlife and invertebrates, preserving the diversity of species. 


Rough Sea, 2013

Almost like white horses, waves make patterns in the ocean.  Seagulls ride the currents of the air.  



Within mysterious darkness and light, we have to embrace a light and dark side within us.



A calm ocean floats a boat to shore, or to new places never seen before. 


Sailing on the Sea, 2013

In a windsail boat, it’s how we should travel, rather than using diesel all the time.  Everything could be fairtrade, and people could get a decent wage for what they grow, if we got back into windsail boats, windsail ships.  The sea would be a lot cleaner without the diesel. The painting represents the freedom to travel in an environmentally sensitive way.  


Three Trees, 2013

Mist in the background, sun shining through, trees standing tall, feel how proud they are when they are standing tall, deep-rooted in the earth.  It’s how we should be.  


St. Michael’s Mount

This mountain, connected to the Cornish mainland by a narrow strip of land that disappears at high tide, occupies a lay line criss-crossing St. Michael’s line and St. Mary’s line in the Isles of Scilly.   There is also an ancient forest, 6,000 years old, that can be seen at low tide.  The lion refers to Rastafarian doctrine, and to Heile Selassi’s visit to Cornwall in the1950s. 


Two Trees

Two trees, overlooking a lake, sun shining through.  What does this make you feel? Does it create a peace within you?    An ideal spot for meditation, and finding yourself.  


Moon Angels Guarding the Sea

These two angels represent the tide coming in and the tide going out.  



The green edge represents the forest.  The lake is dark blue, and the rain is above. 

The paint going across happened naturally, like rain falling in the rainforest.  We should preserve the rainforest and our tree friends.
