I make art with nature about nature. I make all my work in the studio but seem to do all my thinking outside in the landscape. Finding myself preoccupied with four main habitats; those of Meadow, Woodland, Hedgerow and Coast. I walk these landscapes regularly. I notice, I collect natural finds and I write down my creative ideas in my mind. I find my creative ideas forming when perhaps I am handling the shape of a seed pod in the garden or finding a feather out whilst walking the dogs, watching the weather and seasons change throughout the year.
Over the past year I have become more and more concerned with conservation. Even on a simple everyday level such as conservation of our domestic hedges for nesting birds. I feel very strongly that my work is heading in a direction that may be able to highlight local and global issues with native species and habitat loss. It is part of my own everyday life, both in the garden and home and in my studio practice.
