I am interested in transition. I see and try to absorb the landscape, the rural, urban and the area or division between the two, my garden, the forest, the wide open, the tracks to the horizon. Sometimes I respond to the formal aspects of design placed within or possibly growing out of a landscape, at other times I try to make some sense of the apparent organised chaos in nature and respond to that challenge. In observing these transitions, I seek out the history, the future and the things that seem to be hanging in between or simply the here and now.
I live in Sherwood Forest in an area which was once the heart of the North Midlands Coalfield, surrounded by heavy industry which impacted the land but which is now being redeveloped or allowed to return to its natural state.
