Statement

I take inspiration from a 400 million year old journey cast in stone. Growing up in Caithness, I was surrounded by the county’s flagstone, it’s heritage, and the vast natural landscape composed during it’s formation. I see sky, sea and land in the stone’s colours, textures and gradients. Through digital processes, I create landscapes using photographs of Caithness stone captured from various sites including harbours, beaches, paving slabs and ancient standing stones. Through my work I aim to encourage a deeper understanding and appreciation of the connection between people and land.
