“As an artist I return to places over time, picking up the threads of a visual story. Scenes change but are also restored, reafirmed. Places are always renewing themselves- a shelf of rock by a thundering sea, beaches in a winter light, fields overshadowed by mountains, forests in seasonal flux. I draw the image out, build it up in waves of colour, try to strike the right note; the afterglow of memory”
