habitats and landforms
I am interested in the richness and diversity of Scotland's natural habitats and geology. The idea of a sense of particularity of place and custodianship is fascinating and very relevant. I have been exploring and experimenting with ways of expressing this diversity and have been creating drawn and rubbed 'section specimens', 'detail lumps' which have also turned into 'rock maps' with contour lines and other map features. This ties in with the element of walking which also informs my work (on another page). I've also made detailed oil painted boards depicting the lush and mossy life of a blanket bog.
