It has been a heart-warming journey fulfilling the brief proposed last October. Much of the work on display is bespoke to the National Memorial Arboretum as I charted this beautiful park through the seasons.
My brief included the themes: Sacrifise, Grief, Reconciliation, Rememberance, Freedom, Love amongst others.  I've tried to reflect the deep sentiments of this park and also pay homage to the arboreturm as a living entity in its own right.  So, true to the symbolic nature of everything on the site, nothing in my paintings are depicted by accident.
Cultures throughout time have developed a visual vocabulary associated with the flora and fauna around us. I've encorporated some of them within my paintings.  Welcome to my exhibition and enjoy discovering the story behind the imagery.
