1999 Changed direction after years of contemplation. Utilising my technical drafting skills into one area only, which I felt would inspire me for a long time to come. I began my passion for Mandalas. These are all hand painted, no prints, no computer programs. I have concentrated on creating and exhibiting these for the last 25 years. Works held in numerous private and public collections, and featured in many print publications. My second passion alongside mandalas is creating art works and exhibiting in the virtual world of Second Life.

These images all celebrate the joy of summer. Some are my original paintings, some photographs, and others, digital images created in the virtual world Secondlife. No AI has been used.
