My work usually takes the form of projects based around Man’s interaction with nature, which can be visually or conceptually inspired and driven by curiosity. The projects are often long term involving lengthy observation in all weathers and all seasons, artistic and scientific research and patience. I embrace anthropomorphism and choose to work within sight of animals and not from hides. I do not disturb but exist with them, it is their choice to stay or go. Other ingredients . . .
. . . staring, watching, dreaming.
On this website is just some of the ensuing work.
