Turn a stone, nature leaves its imprint.
For me as an artist I am constantly inspired with what I see everyday in the natural world, whether this be flora and fauna, old discarded buildings, shadows or raindrops.
It is these, delicate subtle marks that embody my work.
Artist Books have become an important part of my fine art language; they enable me to express my work as a metaphor for the written page.
The old mine, I see echoed in the trees........one man made the other natural.
The Framed View
I see inspiration in the shadows, the old arches that frame a view.
The old arch window of the mine becomes the inspiration for mark making.

Stones under the water
Beautiful marks and textures are abstracted.

So dear friends what inspires you? I would love to hear from you.
