Open 10am to 5pm, Monday to Friday

Work, life and play. These images and structures range over time and reflections. I never considered myself as an artist. The works are a way of seeing, interpreting, and expressing my understanding of the world, explaining it to myself; if no one else. …. I worked alone, unaware of an art-world or trends.

The works are ordered so that the viewer can travel through my landscapes.


WAA member Louisa Johnson has added their exhibition news
