I have been working in drawing, carving and printmaking for a number of years, combining attentive observation with an environmental focus. I have explored the beauty of trees and the remains of forest fires. More recently I have been caught by the movement of water and wind.  I often draw en plein air but also work from the photos I regularly take, recording the time spent and fixing the experience in memory. Recently I started using collage as a way of magnifying the drawings and the prints to more fully elaborate the complexity of the subject. But often during the isolation of the pandemic I have simply drawn what I see before me, regaining a way to focus attention and record my presence.  (June 2021)
