 “Because my work is not literal, not an exact place or thing, my audience tends to be made up of people who are capable of interpreting life in different ways. I think of my work as being like a visual poem. It’s the accuracy of a feeling, not the accuracy of representation that I am interested in." - Nicholas Wilton

 This is my "visual poem". It appears in the new issue of Somerset Apprentice (Spring 2016). I'm always happy and grateful when a painting makes it because, even though I love working with collage and textiles, my first love is painting. And in this magazine, you also get step-by-step information on how it was created.

This piece does have collage, but the painting is the most important element.
