Canada, England, Scotland, USA, Wales, 2016-2018

During my travels, I am grateful for the times of peacefulness that can often be found in rural areas, on shores and riversides, and especially in parks and gardens of all styles and sizes. This work has developed mainly as my means of expressing appreciation for, and connection with, the natural environment. Here I can explore various themes: the entwinement of nature with signs of the human-made; the process of nature reclaiming its space; the elemental qualities of earth, water, and sky; and the cycle of growth, abundance, and decay. I am also interested in aged structures, as well as spiritual sites and beliefs. With these images I can recall each quiet corner of the world that provided an oasis on the journey.
