Manhattan

The City of New York is an amazing place to me. The energy, vitality and creativity is like nothing I have ever experienced in any city. The full on dynamic of the place is infectious and somehow disturbing in a positive way. Iconic and colourful I love the street scenes and the urban style of New Yorkers and it is such a contrast to the quietness of the English countryside.

I first went to NYC in 1984 on a four day art residency. At the time I was living in a small hamlet of about 20 estate cottages. My neighbours were sheep. It was a pastoral dream. Going from this environment into Manhattan was a culture shock to say the least. I was born in London and have visited many other big cities and so this big city was no new thing but the Big Apple was something else. The energy was electric, the people eclectic and in the city that never sleeps I felt energised and alive. I have loved the city ever since and find it endlessly inspiring.
