‘Nature is imagination itself.’ – William Blake, 1799

Inspired by journeys I have taken, and journeys I hope to make, Hoopla is one of a suite of works I have recently painted that celebrate the bird and animal kingdom in all its colour, exceptional variety and powerful potential to inform and influence us.
