IONA 1

My connection with Iona began in my early teens, forty years ago and it is a place I repeatedly return to mentally and physically. This tiny elemental island is a liminal place, with both a sense of collective memory and the beginnings of things. Intricate detail of small natural objects are given space, evoking journeys made in the expansive landscape. I am drawn to the fugitive edges of its foreshore, its mutable meeting points of land, sea and sky.. Iona's translucent light and quiet simplicity continue to inspire much of my work.
