CHESHIRE

On Canvas

I get much of my inspiration from my local landscape, particularly Spurstow and The Sandstone Trail. The Sandstone Trail is a 34 mile footpath from Whichurch to Frodsham in Cheshire. It has been a source of inspiration that I have revisited regularly over the years, it played an important part in the work I produced during my degree course and it holds many childhood memories. 

It is a changeable landscape with high sandstone ridges, dense woodland, undulating pathways, sheer drops and wide open aerial views. The drama in this landscape is the changing levels, horizons and viewpoints. I get very preoccupied with the linear qualities of the trees, the colours and textures of the foliage and the contours of the land.
