Much of my time is spent outdoors watching and recording ecological phenomena. Below are some examples of studies created from 'being there' in the field and working on the image as the natural narratives play out in front of me.

St Ninians Cave

On the Whithorn peninsula the cave is a retreat or hermitage where ten crosses are cut into the cave wall itself, and 18 early Christian carved stones have been found. A magical place.
