My interest in the countryside and its geography has inspired me to find a way to share my love of the natural environment through my art.
The images for the mugs are created by lino cuts taken from my sketches of prominent features and familiar landscapes. I look at the geological elements to find dramatic and interesting landscapes and then read up on its historical and cultural significance and sketch ideas.
My focus is on the landscape and I am inspired by the vast variety of geological character of our country. Craggy limestone escarpments, granite tors, millstone grit outcrops and glacial cut valleys are just a few examples of the dramatic features that shape our countryside.
