drawing is important

the energy of line

the simple mark making of a pencil

gathering as a method of making     

pathways feet have taken             

a reminder of why

a reflection of what is slipping through our fingers

simplicity out of chaos

offering a way to describe a process


pure spirit and raw energy                         

witness to a wild land

suggestions of growth, movement, energy and air                       

essential questioning                   

to be here               

a response not a portrait

an immediate response prepared for and given time              

 just passing through


This exhibition has helped me focus through lockdown and given a goal in a strange time of uncertainty. It's been a joy to have a new studio to work in and retreat to. Its been a journey to re-establish my home here on the Craignish Peninsula, to carve out space to think, draw and move in the landscape. The journey continues and the questions and questioning become more a part of everyday life.

                                                                  It is witness and reflection. It is joy in being here, now.                                                                   

I appreciate you coming to look and share in this.
