Artist Statement

I  make drawings. 

At present my main project is in my twenty year plan to map the rock edges of the North Atlantic with a series of drawings. The work is site-specific and to date I have been in Scotland, Shetland, Cornwall, Brittany, Ireland, Maine, Nova Scotia, Maritime Quebec, Newfoundland and Southern Norway. I join all these Rim locations in the Coastline series.

I am documenting a disappearing coastline under the immediate influence of erosion, changing sea levels and weather patterns. This Ocean binds us and shapes us as communities and nations on the Rim. I have a growing respect of such a powerful force, it commands our attention and our realisation that it too is a fragile eco-system.
