When you’re from a place where field and furrow, seaweed and shoreline, are never far away, your sense of self is tattooed with the colours, patterns and textures of the natural world. Tethered by the anchors of land, sea and sky, this collection of artworks explores the subject of self-identity in a realm of things less defined.

Nature has the power to take each of us on a deep and personal journey and our relationships with the natural world can be profound. Human consciousness finds its own connection points within the ancient wisdom and energy that resides there, enriching our sense of personal spirituality.

To cultivate a deeper sense of self; by exploring deeply and culturally encoded memories, ideologies, and emotions of a fractured land, the artist revisits places from childhood that need to be remembered and held, re-examining them within the context of the present.

Exploration of personal narratives and immersion in these unique land and seascapes, fans and re-ignites the embers of emotion and memory. With perspective and distance, messages and memories are filtered, maintained and held. These representations of past and present places are brought together in a series of paintings that act as a portrait of the artist as witness and interpreter.
