My work has developed from an early interest in the man-made rearrangement of the landscape caused by the bypass and gravel pits near my home town, via the solidity and complexity of London's cityscapes and the immense scale of the fading industrial sites of the docklands and the north of England, to a preoccupation with Scotland's mountain and moorland landscapes.
I'm drawn to the individuality of the mountains and the peculiarity of their shape, how these massive natural forms sit in the landscape with their looming presence, how they relate to each other and how they are looked at and experienced. Recent work has been concerned with the intricacy of habitats, particularly around peat bogs and moors and the forms, detail and textures of vegetation and rocks.
I aim to further this exploration by experimenting with ideas around scale.
