In our Spring of 2004/5 I made a pilgrimage to Ireland and England in search of Standing Stones. I've always had a sense of Stonehenge in my memory, and a strong attraction to granite outcrops, together with my ancient Irish heritage, so this was a following of tendrils and threads to create a sense of a past. I went without much plan but allowed intuition to guide me and was well rewarded. From this journey I created an exhibition "Whispers from a Journey".

The impact of my Celtic journey carried through to this painting from my 2009 show"Where the Veil is Thin"
