Here is a recent personal description in response to his current work:
“I am drawn to places that give exhilaration, contemplation & reflection.
Edgelands, waysides, the coastline, the transient effect and fleeting movement of a river or stream’s ceaseless flow with their changing light & mood.
Places that affirm the beauty within the natural world.”
