Helvetica Light is an easy to read font, with tall and narrow letters, that works well on almost every site.

Recent work consists of a body of drawings and paintings made in the context of lockdown and the coronavirus pandemic. 

Walking has been a key activity during this time, and has contributed to a change in working process which now involves quite a ritualistic process of walking and photographing. I then respond to this process through pastel drawings, working from memory back in my studio. The drawings represent a fleeting self perception as I move through the landscape towards my coastal destination. I then work slowly on a body of oil paintings, which represent my  response to the ever changing light and atmosphere on the coastal horizon, observed in my stillness at the end of my walk.

For me the coronavirus pandemic has intensified a liminal sense of identity in my relationship with place.  The bridge between self and world has become increasingly about the notions of transience and impermanence.
