All of my artwork started life as photographs that I took when I was out walking, but then seemed to take on a life of their own. Sometimes whilst I was walking I would feel the energy change and it was as if I had stepped into another world where the colours were more vivid and all nature had a strange ethereal beauty.
It was then that I started to see all the small details that would otherwise be overlooked, like small smiling flower faces in the hedgerows, a frosty web, the light through the trees and the patterns it made on the pat, the bones of the winter branches making filigree patterns against a clear blue sky, a feather in the mud at my feet. It was like looking with fairy eyes and through those eyes I would see all the hedgerow flowers nodding to me, the achingly beautiful colours of the fallen leaves, reflections in pools and puddles, faces in the trees and the endless play of light and shadow.
When I looked at the pictures later I could feel that energy once more and some images just jumped out at me to be shared.
