This show has taken over thirty years to happen. Since my early twenties I have wanted to visit and explore the magical place of Banyan trees, temples, deities, colour, architecture, festivities, tigers, monkeys and elephants � just a few of the offerings that tell the story of India.

Over the past fifteen years I have painted and travelled extensively in the United Arab Emirates and Oman, showing works in Dubai and Muscat. But last year I felt that the time was right to finally head for India.

My first trip took me to the west coast,where for a month I spent time travelling by moped, taxis, boats and buses exploring the amazing diversity of landscape and culture. Carrying a sketchbook, acrylics and watercolours I started to make my first impressions of India on paper.

Multicoloured temples and white churches sit amongst the palm trees that run alongside the rivers that split the landscape. Everywhere I looked would be colour � the ladies� saris, the decorated cow, the musician playing for money or the bustling markets selling flowers.

I try to find the power of storytelling in a painting, and in India it�s to be found in abundance. During my time there I made many sketches and smaller location-based work.These were the beginnings and memories for the paintings to come for this exhibition.

Once home I started work on much larger canvases with oils, and the stories began. Each painting gradually finding its own way and revealing parts of the personal journey that I intend to continue over the years to come.
