"Although deeply rooted in my own coastal area, I have always felt a great sense of alignment with other seaward-facing communities. I have gradually been making my way further and further north, following the paths of the migratory birds that visit our Estuary each year and recent explorations have focused on remote northern edgelands. During a visit to Arctic Greenland in 2017 I made several large cyanotype prints but cast them aside as worthless. 27 months later, at the start of 2020, I felt inspired to look at them again. Now chopped and sliced into tiny pieces, perhaps they tell something of the far north after all.."
