Artistic statement:          

"My daughters play violin in their rooms and sheep graze in the field opposite my Norfolk home. My mind wanders and comes upon a girl playing violin for an appreciative sheep. The seed of an idea germinates and leads to a painting titled "Pastoral". This is how "art from imagination" works for me." Nicola Slattery
