Here in Cornwall, we are fortunate to live in a coastal area where much of the local geology is exposed in the cliff-face, boulders and beach pebbles. A lot of my work from this intensive period involved using a layering process by combining photographic techniques with collage materials, and the resulting images mounted within a light box. This series of work mirrored my own experience of looking down a microscope at thin sections of rock. What interested me most was the way I could exploit different densities between each layer using either colour or texture to either block or admit the passage of light between the layers. Oh, and a Happy New Year to you!

I am an artist who lives in an old Methodist Chapel in the heart of a small rural village on the Western edge of Dartmoor, Devon. I love wild places and make work about the pilgrimages I make. Most days revolve around the needs of my two ponies and two whippets and writing a book about one of my epic equine pilgrimage. Otherwise I spend my time creating: with camera, pencil, pen, brush or collage. Also blog posts about walking / thinking / observing / drawing. A spiritual quester who enjoys sharing my encounters with the mystery and magic of everyday life, both mundane and profound. Above all, always searching for the core of my creativity.
