The work explores the concept of being in a place; what emotions are felt, what is experienced, and how the abstraction of this understanding can be transmuted into images on glass.
An ongoing intimate exploration of the Brecon Beacons informs the work. Personal reflection and observation is what the mark making is about, what it will become.
