"Setting your eyes upon nature is the highest refinement of civilization", Matsuo Bashoo, Japanese Master Poet, 1644 - 1694;
"We study and educate ourselves ourselves not only for our own good, but for the benefit of all", James Robertson Marshall, 19? - 199?)

These two quotes reflect quite well my sentiments in life generally and towards work and the arts more specifically.

Most of my images can be printed to very large sizes -
