Working with the nuances and peculiarities of the natural environment I made a series of rubbings and prints taken directly from the landscape. Begun on the tidal shoreline of the River Tweed, in rural Wiltshire and County Durham, these large drawings seek to combine the authenticity of site with a reflective studio-based response to place; the resulting forms resonate with a variety of references to fauna, flora and the domestic arts.
