"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Augustus John, R.A.

20 years ago I was in the YOC and used to draw pencil pictures of birds with my schoolmate Jabah. Memories are flooding back looking at your images. Keep up the good work. Best Regard, Steven.
