Birds and other organic forms are themes in my work, representing, transience and movement through the elements, through water land and air. Trees are rooted and stable, but reaching up and out. Pathways and rivers always lead somewhere else; railway bridges carry trains on journeys, while the arches underneath cover another possible route. The river reflects all these things back up in a strange wobbly, fractured way.

These are the starting points. I photograph and sketch, recording the elements, shapes, colours and forms I will use. Once started the work becomes more about the tension between opposites; light and dark, solid form and the air around it,movement and stasis, the tangible world and the intangible reflection, and the constant numinous presence of nature.
