Nestled deep in rural England, I can usually be found in the side room of our thatched cottage which I call my studio. There, with a dog on lap and another close by, I am either painting or carving out a lino cut next to the old mangle which I have converted into a printing press. I am inspired by simple daily life. Just before dusk is my favourite time, the moon highlighting the chase of the hares as the owl silently swoops. Then it is back to the warmth of the kitchen to settle down to listen to the radio.
