Flowing Through


For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I always feel drawn to the abstract qualities of fragments in the landscape and in particular its geological structures. This has led to using natural earth pigments and clays in my practice. I have mined raw ochres from 300 feet down the old iron ore mine at the Clearwell Caves in the Forest of Dean. I collect others on my travels in the UK and abroad.
