I paint paintings, write, speak and create other things which help people live full, creative lives. I have painted all my life and am interested in: the landscape as psychology/psychological backdrop; the fragility of children and teenagers; themes around engagement/disengagement in activities; abandoned play and leisure environments. These painting themes also reflect my career in occupational therapy and coaching. Although it might sound like a strange mix, all these disciplines have a creative heart and believe in the potential for human beings to live engaged, meaningful lives. Outside of this, I am a bit of a geek and love the neuro and occupational science involved in the creative process, how we tackle risk taking as human beings and also stop ourselves from sabotaging our well-intentioned plans!
