"The body of work is inspired by a particular landscape close to where I live. It is a place I have visited repeatedly throughout my life, a place of safety and tranquillity.

 

We all have these places of atmospheric sobriety which  makes us feel safe

 

I have an on-going fascination with trying to re-create the feeling I experience when I am in this particular place. It has a lot to do with personal memories and emotion

 

I find the medium of charcoal satisfying in creating this work. Its subtle properties help me translate my interpretation of the landscape. Moving the charcoal around with my fingers on heavy itialian paper almost seems to take on a magical quality. I slowly build up layers, adding and subtracting, sometimes adding ink and pastel, all to help me evoke atmosphere and depth in each piece"
