Walking is the subject and inspiration for my work. I notice, take in, and reflect upon what was seen and felt in the natural environment. Navigating the terrain, my body and senses feel in collaboration with the landscape – the contours of the land, animal paths, bird migrations, growth and decay of plant life. These observations act as a trigger for intuitive impulses, emerging as mark-making, gestures and staining across surfaces or buried by material waiting to be made visible. These experiences are threaded into my work as a tracking of time, memory and space which provide a framework for ongoing exploration.
