Oceans swell as lifestyle sells
The bare and barren truth lurks
An imagined Photoshop collage
Draws weary as deliveries stop
Where are you my dear old friend?
The one I knew so well as a child
Take me home…
to the birds that sing,
to the trees that whisper
and the flowers that bloom.
The formation of the shape of a tree by the words within the poem are representing the concept of wisdom through nature. The depth and beauty of wisdom held within the natural world is further presented in various shades of blue that are symbolic of the ocean. Warning us that we have switched off from this wisdom and that it is far more powerful than us, we are arrogant not to listen and now face off with a rising ocean. Unless we tune into the wisdom of the earth and nurture it, all we have been gifted with will disappear into a nothingness as is displayed by the overshadowing of the white.
The art that accompanies my poetry is a type of abstract expression of the theme and/or emotion that the poem conveys. I do not use paint brushes instead I collect leaves, bark, stones, flowers, seeds or whatever interesting shape I find on a walk out in nature or in my garden, then I dip them in the paint to discover different patterns, I also use artist palette knives to enhance these shapes.
As I am painting through a process of experimentation it does not always turn out the way I imagine so I must re-imagine persisting through trial and error. The final art piece may then be the accumulation of three or four attempts painted over each other. However it is the “mistakes” that are ultimately the guiding light that contribute to the formation of the end result.
I take my inspiration from observing the world around me and I learn through the process of experimentation. For me to experiment is to discover.

Also note timber colour, grooves, knots and holes vary with each picture frame due to the nature of recycled timber. See below for the type of frame you will receive.
