I am interested in the ways that landscape has been depicted in the past as well as the present. Following the footpaths of the Lake District poets, visiting Yorkshire, Wales and Ireland, I have explored the links between art, literature, and landscape. 
I strive to capture both the aesthetic essence and the sense of place that can be found in writers as varied as Wordsworth, the Brontës and W.H. Auden or Irish writers such as Maurice O'Sullivan.
