"My workshops show you how to create a real three-dimensional place, on a flat piece of paper, and make it so real and beautiful that you want to be there. It puts yourself and your viewers in that place. I have used every medium, I have sold many drawings, watercolors, and oil paintings internationally. Watercolor is by far the best medium for creating a place and putting you in it."

"There are many lakes and ponds like this in England. They are referred to as ponds.This is one of many created in the ancient rural Weald of Southern England after much of the great forest was felled. They were created as Mill ponds centuries ago, in the early medieval era, before the birth of modern technology. In some places, such as the Tillingbourne Valley, battles were fought in the fields by workers for competing estates over water rights.

"Understanding what a place is about, knowing the people working in the area, and the history in a landscape, allows me to be more observant and accurate. Truth is beauty."
