My work is grounded in observational drawing and the experience of the rural environment. The process of drawing absorbs the sense of self and the resulting images record a response to the subject rather than being literal transcriptions of its' appearance. This response is taken further in paintings and prints, where the final piece emerges from the physical actions of layering and erasing colour and line. Much of my work has been derived from walks made in the countryside around my home in rural North Wales where the land has been shaped by the weather and the activities of humankind through the ages.
