Even in these momentous times, whether you are for staying in or for leaving the European Union and with the refugee crisis unfolding and the thousands of displaced peoples trekking across Europe it can't be denied that we British will always have a love affair with the continent; Europhobes or Europhiles maybe but it still seems we nearly all have a soft spot for a little bit of France, or Spain, or Greece or wherever.

Its a time of flux and change again for Europe, but it seems we are and will always be drawn to warm sunny destinations; lured by the thought of lazy days spent basking in exotic sun splashed, flower-bedecked gardens, cool drinks sipped next to azure pools and calm seas, slow ambles through bird song-filled meadows and in shady village streets under blue skies. A temporary paradise maybe, a brief migration to escape from the day-to-day of stressed out lives, a place to recoup, to rest, to recover and recharge; a moments stillness in our busy schedules. A holiday.

Each of these pieces of my work represents a personal reason or decision - a previous visit, a childhood memory, a family story, a read description, a chosen study. France, Spain, Greece, and other countries were visited in my childhood with my family when we would wander and camp wild through long summers across a continent in the tail end of subsistence cultures; communities still throwing off the cloaks and yokes of post-war recovery. This was followed by a youth of hitchhiking and re-exploring that added to this sense of attachment and fascination to these southern climes.

Now seen again with picture making eyes but with the same sense of awareness and delight; individual olive groves remembered from decades before, the same rivers followed along with their changing communities and populace. All are places for making art, different lands and cultures, other peoples' countries with striking and remarkable wildlife and extremes of climate. The inspiration is a response to this diverse and dynamic world.
