  • Description


    I am a practising print maker, sculptor and writer. I live in the heart of the beautiful medieval village of Cordes Sur Ciel in S.W.France where I have my gallery and teaching studios. Since 2009 I have been working on an a major exhibition and performance for world consciousness. I self publish and make my own books. I practice Zen meditation and a form of dance meditation of my own invention which I love to share with others. During the summer Cordes is alive with cultural events, bars with live music, galleries, restaurants and is a European Heritage Site.

    They could gain a personal insight into this artist's way of life where living simply and creatively has been a personal choice for over 35 years. No routine, self determination and self expression have been the guiding lights of my life and I'm willing to share my philosophy and spiritual and technical skills with others who are on a similar quest.

    Cordes Sur Ciel is equally home to other independent thinkers who have chosen to live here away from the pressures of modern urban life, whether they are writers, musicians, researchers or simply young parents wanting an alternative life of quality in the country to raise their family. There are fabulous walks within the medieval town and the surrounding countryside for lovers of history and Nature and we practice meditation, yoga & dance regularly here.
