Why do we run? Why do we draw? The timeless, universal, priceless activities referred to in this short video are among those that intrigue me as I try to express how we explore and experience the peace and tranquility of our natural environment. I am interested broadly in how we go forward in our lives never entirely sure of the outcome. How connections made with particular places and people influence the direction of that ‘going forward’. My main inspiration for video, drawing and painting are the local landscapes I walk in regularly and am familiar with near me in Princeton, New Jersey and Selborne, Hampshire. In my work I want to re-awaken our awareness of and attention to these beautiful places.
