Artist’s statement

Ever since I first visited the Monaro region of southern New South Wales I have been drawn to it. Under the upturned bowl of the sky, standing alone in that vast, bleak landscape, a sense of lightness and clarity of mind – a hyper-awareness of my environment – seems to wash over me. I feel profoundly content there, and my artwork is my attempt at expressing that feeling exactly as I experience it: with a camera in my hand.
