Working as a landscape artist my practice occurs through a translation of physical time-based actions. Cartography of location, place and time emerges through different mediums as a way of being in and moving through and connecting with site, memory and landscape.
Recently work has focused on immersion in our land and it’s relationship to performative words such as ‘I Carried The Sea’:
I carried the Sea. I carried the Sea.
I carried the Sea in my pocket, in my hands and on my skin; in the pit of my stomach and on the walls of my veins.
The Sea I carried, it is with me.
I carried the Earth. The Earth I carried.
I carried the Earth under my chin, beneath my feet and in my eyes; the weight of it clouds my chest.
I carried the Earth as it directed me and I will never be the same.
Further to this I also work as an illustrator and images of my A(rt)dventure illustrations involving swimming, cycling, running and generally being out in the hills in all weather can be found on my illustration website.
