I love art. I love making it and I love enjoying it. But is art really all that useful? I say yes. Apart from anything else, if everyone in the world focused on making art (in whatever form they enjoy) I suspect we would be a lot closer to living the peaceful, balanced, harmonious existence most people claim to want. Trying to solve the world’s ‘problems’ doesn’t seem to get us far. I would dare to suggest that it actually makes things worse. Let’s hear it for art – for creating just because we can! As far as I know there has never been a war that started in an artist’s studio.

This image, shot straight into the sun, has a magical quality about it, like the place it was taken-  Brunswick Heads in Northern New South Wales. I plan to live there one day.
