About this piece
In this painting I am trying to capture the magnificence and grandeur of Ely Cathedral’s interior . There is such contrast in the quality of space within and
everywhere . Huge openness and strength of the stone pillars and vaulted ceilings ..The shafts of light ..the filigree of delicate ironwork and the quiet

I work in a variety of mediums, drawing, painting and making ceramics.
I combine experiment and self discipline in using different materials and work intuitively exploring my visual response to life around me. I have to care about what I am making to give it life.
I range between wanting to make art which is visually beautiful which captures the beauty of living things, and wanting at the same time, to defer and learn from what has gone before-to make work which reflects art’s history.
My subjects range widely from the gentle and beautiful to serious subjects like war and poverty.
