'I take sketchbooks and notebooks everywhere. Often, they are the starting points for larger works, but I also enjoy them just as a record of my travels, my thoughts and feelings about journeys, places and times too.'
Travels along the south west coast of Ireland between Kenmare and Bantry Bay
“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate”
