Since I left the Wimbledon School of Art, my painting has taken me all over the world from Canada, Syria, Jordan and Jerusalem; but, since my first visit in 1988, Lamu has become the place that I return to year after year. I find the ever-changing vistas, cultural atmosphere and people always inspiring and I relish the challenge of sketching and painting plein-air in the crowded narrow streets, sun-baked rooftops and perilously rocking boats.
