Landscape, particularly where there is evidence of human activity, provides my inspiration. I enjoy drawing the strong shapes of such man-made forms as paths, harbours, churches or archeological sites, which often seem so embedded in their surroundings as to be natural features of the landscape, while also speaking of history and community. Lithography is my favourite medium. It is a printmaking technique, which depends on the chemical opposition of grease and water to print an image from the surface of limestone. With the stone itself deriving from the landscape, I feel lithography has a real affinity with my subject.
