ARTIST STATEMENT
My work initially is a document of the transformation of a landscape, whether this is the beauty of a plunging
valley having been savagely ripped and carved by ice, leaving plucked rocks and rugged contours in its wake,
or the layers of earth revealed by weathering and erosion.

I strive to capture the natural light as it dramatically saturates the landscapes, casting shadows or softening
the landscape during the late summer, all dusky, warm and slightly flushed.

My interest is in the natural earth and the impact it has on us. I am drawn to the landscape, it might be the
way a cloud forms and hangs waif-like, lingering, soft and harmless or how it can suddenly transform to smother,
encroaching overhead, ominous and menacing.

I am amazed by the desolation of snow capped mountains, frozen and chilling, to meandering rivers and
ox-bow lakes created by river erosion. The influence of weather, climate and sudden changes in the landscape
are what inspire me and I am constantly looking and trying to capture this in my work.
