My works are inspired from walking and sitting out in the landscape, stilling the mind and closing my eyes to see images of light or dreams in my minds eye. I recently discovered the word Útiseta, associated with an ancient Nordic practice of divining knowledge, which describes this combination of sitting, seeing and place. I am contemplative when I work; a quiet mind guides a meditative path through a creative process.
My works are in a range of different art media: drawing, painting, printing and sculpture. I particularly enjoy making art medals, which capture large ideas in small hand-held sculptures.
The Observatory offers a new environment for me to create work, on the horizon between sea and sky, open to the elements and in a public place. This is a very exposed location. It will be a new experience for me to be inside looking out while others look in.
