At the moment my work, essentially, is about the environment.....urban and rural.....hard edged architecture living side by side with soft edged nature. The defined lines and strict angles of man made structures juxtaposed with the ebb and flow of natural growth. The passage of time, the ravages of the elements causing dilapidation, deterioration, and the regenerative powers of nature.
