Artist Statement

Having trained as a geographer, the work is about the landscape, always.  It might at times appear to be unrelated, but the inspiration is there. 

I live in a place that owes its existence to the industrial revolution and even now, just short of 200 years since the Pawtucket Falls were first seen as a source of industrial power, the hand of those early industrialists lies heavy on my city. 

There is never a time when I am not aware of the power of nature and the hand of man.
