The Limestone Hills

I have been walking and working in the rugged limestone hills near my home on Morecambe Bay since 2003. For many years I exclusively worked in sketchbooks, but more recently I have begun to develop drawings and paintings based on my experiences, in the studio. I have so much affection for this limestone landscape, and for the characterful trees and rock forms that I have met on my travels, that I have come to know the area like the back of my hand. I walk the same footpaths and visit the same locations, recording my ideas as I go using a camera and drawing materials. I’m fascinated by how my perception of the landscape and developing sense of place manifests itself in the work over the course of time. It is, of course, an ongoing learning experience, and has become more and more compelling as each year passes. The drawings and paintings are shown with the most recent first.
