Description This is another study of one of the Olive Trees that I discovered in an ancient grove on the road home from Mazi; a treasure trove of fantastic figures writhing and swirling through the ages, formed into living sculptures that enchant and fascinate me.'Conventional opinion is the ruin of our souls.'~ Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)Prints also available directly from the artist.

'Conventional opinion is the ruin of our souls' ~ Mevlana
"I have lived a magical life with amazing people - a grand adventure. What more could I ask than to follow my dreams: to love and laugh, paint and play music, to write and to have travelled the world.
I care not for the past, what fame I have acrued or for any list of accomplishments. Ambition was a hard task master and lead me astray, I know better now and live my life without harming anyone, including myself".
'People fancy they are enjoying
themselves,but they are really tearing out their wings for the sake of an illusion'. ~ Mevlana Rumi (1207 - 1273)
