I have made work about landscape for many years, much of it photographic. The Suffolk environment and landscape is a part of my life as I have lived in Suffolk for almost forty years. However, I am interested in a critical exploration of landscape and how it is physically shaped by human activity and how our perception of it is shaped by cultural practice.
Until retirement, three years ago, I was employed in advice work and before that in adult education. My skills include working with adults in community, formal and informal settings and I have collaborated with the dancer, Mel Horwood in several projects where we explored the relationship between drawing and dance.
I am particularly interested in the ways representation interrelates with our experience of the world, how we can look through the representation at the world and therefore how images can make us look at things differently.
