Solitude

Wanderlust 

A journey through Latin America from the vibrant, sultry backstreets of Havana to the inhospitable high desert of Bolivia and formidable glacial mountains of Patagonia, scoured by wind, rain, ice and snow.

Unyielding

These latest works, inspired by extensive travel through Latin America, bring together a deep connection and passion for the natural world with an appreciation of unique cultures for whom tradition remains strong. Over a total of ten months working on location the drawings which inform this body of work were gathered. To walk and draw becomes a method of understanding, observing, questioning, being still and hoping that with patience something of the essence of place may be revealed.

Living, working and studying in Havana filled my sketchbooks with exuberant colour. Conscious of the turbulent history of the country and its recent past, drawing on the streets led to many chance encounters and fragments of personal stories that became embedded in the artwork. Travelling onward through Central America culture captivated at every turn.

Deliberately travelling light, the journey was made very much on foot taking multiple day treks into remote and mountaineous regions of an otherworldly landscape. Lagoons, ice-fields and glaciars, deserts of salt and toxic minerals, mist wreathed peaks, mountain torrents and wild, rugged coastline. Drawing wasn’t always easy in sub-zero temperatures with a howling wind but I hope the work stands testament to the awe-inspiring beauty of the natural world.
