“As a small child when I was first introduced to the Broads, it seemed like a whole new world to me. Much of Broadland at that time was relatively unspoilt – in fact, as lot of this fascinating area was still a wilderness. As with much of the World, the Broads have changed a great deal, but sometimes it still seems like another world. Moored on some distant river bank on a Summer’s evening, with the mist rising over the water, takes us to another place – perhaps a time to reflect on folk who have gone before and to absorb the haunting sounds of wading birds.

The paintings in this exhibition are tinged with nostalgia and many have more than a little air of mystery to them. I hope that my paintings with help you find a world apart.”
