Landscapes change over the centuries, bearing silent witness to the upheavals history imposes on their inhabitants. Aerial views have been a strong source of inspiration for me, and I have used maps and photographs from my family's village, Zelodok in Lithuania, witness to mass murder during the last war, to make paintings in tribute to a lost community.

I hope that any landsleit from the Zelodok area will contact me if they have visual material which they would like to suggest for inclusion in future paintings, and I would welcome feedback from artists in Lithuania.

I would be delighted to discuss commissions about pieces which incorporate your family history material - maps, photographs and other precious documents. You can click on 'Contact Me' to discuss commissions, or ways in which I can help you to make your own piece of work about your family history. I have originated and run many workshops for A-level students in schools on the theme of 'Identity' , and the students very often include family documents and memory in their research; teachers can contact me to discuss my presentation and workshop via the 'Contact Me' button.
