Dancing at the Dawn of Time / ink on kaolin /12x16"

I'm a Kingsclere-based artist with an interest in landscape, narrative and human interaction with the land.

My recent work has increasingly focussed on trees. I'm interested in shapes and texture, the intricate convolutions of root and branch, the anthropomorphic suggestions of twists and scars: trees with character. Most of this doesn't need the distractions of colour, but it does need at least the suggestion of detail. I use pen and ink, which both fulfils these requirements and links neatly back into the idea of narrative due to its nature as a writing tool.
