"I see these landscapes as living places marked by those who have made their lives there. These are landscapes with histories ranging from ancient Pictish settlements to 19th and 20th century hydro schemes, from historic to contemporary agriculture, fishing and land management. They have their futures too. I wish to create pictures that mirror the marks we leave on the landscape with an honesty that also accepts the captivating effect of the rugged, windblown, changeable beauty of this land upon people."
