This painting was done while looking at buskers in the market square at Canterbury in the UK. I am always fascinated by people and them playing music. There is a monument in the back of them which has been set up to commemorate those who lost their lives in the war.

This painting was done with a biblical verse in mind - "I am the true vine and my father is the gardener..." With this in mind I felt it right that we can only bear fruit in our lives when we stay with Jesus and in his Word for our lives.

The artists who inspire me most are the impressionists and pre-raphaelite artists. Although currently working as a Learning Support Assistant in a local school part-time I paint quite a lot in my spare time and I am a trained graphic designer, although my experience was many years ago.
