Concepts relating to place and land inform my images; bleak Northern landscapes in particular have a constant influence on my work. Instead of addressing landscape through traditional representational imagery, I explore the nature of untamed land obliquely through the creatures that inhabit it. I use images of birds to personify the earthy, unseen complexity of the landscape, exploring the secret systems of animate and inanimate existence of which land is constructed.
