King Street Gallery on William

28 July - 22 August 2009

When looking back and considering the ‘influences’ on my work, several artists and writers come to mind; these may be more or less influential at any given time.

There are though, certain connections that hold and seem to be continuing.

Martin Buber has been one of these connections; often encountered in quotes by other writers. Burber’s articulation of how we respond to the world has been seminal to my way of seeing and therefore how I ‘see’ my paintings.
