“Each place I travel to has a different feel. It’s important to spend the time truly investigating each one… and the best way is by sitting down with a nice cup of tea, a sketch-pad and enough time to sit still and listen. Even though it takes me another three months in the studio, it is here, on site, that the creativity kicks in and the project is designed. I love being on site, recording what I see and feel and I love taking those beginnings back home with me. It’s always a shock when I return 6 months later and see the shed again in real life. I realise that I know it, but not completely. I often wonder how the project would be different if I had time to start it all again from this moment”.

“This became one of the key paintings of this series. I began the painting at that stand in the middle of the board through the pens, in the middle of the painting, and worked out from there. Photographing the process there was a point when I realised that it felt somewhat akin to alchemy – turning a blank piece of paper into something special with just some daubs of coloured water”.
