Interests

In addition to my pursuit of the fine arts, my interest in icon painting has taken me to several Russian monasteries to learn the methods and techniques directly from iconographers and monks. I have also spent an extended period studying traditional icon pigment making with one of the most renowned icon restorers in Krakow, Poland. Other interests include literature and jewellery making. I speak several languages, am an avid traveller and have journeyed extensively over the past 35 years. I like to visit unusual destinations such as Borneo, Papua New Guinea, Greenland, Lapland, Zambia, Bolivia, Mongolia, Bhutan, Yap, Albania, the Faroe Islands and many other far-flung places.
