Artist Statement

My work is rooted in the Welsh landscape where I live.

I make detailed drawings in crayon, pen and ink, mainly of sheep. Although I feel an affinity for all animals, I return to sheep again and again. It’s not just the soft colours of the fleece and the warm bulk of them, but the ancient bony heads and the look in the eye that exert a hold on me. There is also something about their being in the landscape that is reassuring and timeless.

I love the sight of a flock moving slowly and eternally across a Welsh hillside scattered with hawthorn trees.

My drawings celebrate their unwavering gaze and presence.
