“My inspiration comes from many sources. I rely mostly on my dreams and inner feelings as I have done since I was a child together with my love of nature, and fascination for myths and ancient legends my mind is constantly visualising NEW creations. In my view “Faerie” represents the natural world we live in, and whether you believe or not, they do have a place in our modern day society, in fact their light is needed more now than it ever was before. It’s time to look at this world and our feelings towards our fellow man, and realise what harm we are doing. Most of my images are inspirational and uplifting, offering hope or a thought for the future of this beautiful world we live in. I truly believe that we all have a little bit of Faerie light within our hearts, helping us to make the right decisions in our everyday lives we just have to look for it, and let it SHINE BRIGHTLY in the darkness”!
Shine brightly and live your dreams.
