Travel is one of my passions, I find constant inspiration from the countries I visit, and as well as broadening the mind, travel also sets the imagination free. I travel to the East quite a bit and especially to the United Arab Emirates, or Arabia. Ever since my first glimpse of these lands, in the nineties, I have discovered that Arabia, is all in the mind ! My imagination runs free when I see the desert and the distant mountains… my mind starts to invent the paintings and my words become poetry. In recent times I have taken to describing, in paint, my fantasies of these fabled places. Only now am I beginning to understand my true fascination with places and their history and how they speak to us. Like Voices from the past they reveal our history to us and show us our true ancestry
