My work currently explores Northern islandscapes, their intense water laden colours and the remains of working from the land and the sea, past and present.

Shetland is full of obscure structures some glowing in the dark or only visible with the snowfall, circular, rectangular, half removed, mostly forgotten scarring the landscape. Winter tides create technicoloured plastic strewn beaches. All of these treasured finds and the perpetually mesmerizing colour changes of the sea and the sky continue to trick and delight me into recording, interacting and creating my own remains to be discovered
