The main concern of my work is to convey my visual response and physical engagement to the environment i find myself in at the time. I work predominantly en plein air as this gives the work a spontaneity and integrity seldom achieved in the studio. Working on site also allows me more freedom to explore my process of mark-making in direct response to the subject matter.
Through a process of walking and drawing in the landscape, I have developed an intimate knowledge of the wild places of Scotland. In my work i aim to translate the experiences of wild places, the wind in your face, the soft bogginess of the ground, the sheer exhilaration of wild places.
