The majority of my work is created "plein air", that is on location so I not only try to capture the visuals, but also all the sensory perceptions I experience at the moment. The environment can be challenging at times, which can add to the piece in a positive way. My thoughts are also affected and I often question the impact we have on the earth. This has made me more proactive in conservation and environmental issues. If we are conscious and responsible for our actions every day our impact will be minimal.
