My work is inspired by the landscapes and archaeology of remote places on the Celtic fringe of Britain, in particular Orkney, Shetland and Skomer Island in Pembrokeshire. I use a variety of mixed media materials and found objects to create a sense of these bare, windswept and thinly populated places. I also use symbols and images from megalithic tombs, cairns and passage graves in order to convey the rich history of these places on the edge'.
In this talk I discuss the landscapes that inspire me, the archaeology that fascinates me and the techniques that I use to evoke a strong sense of place. I bring examples of completed work, work in progress and sketch books.
