I love the architecture of the river; the old wharves, jetties and moorings. I study the ebb and flow of the tide on my journeys to and from the studio. The river is a living thing in a constant state of flux. Its tides reveal glimpses of its past and the sounds along its course point to a time when it was a working river. Many of my favourite places have now gone but they are archived as photos, drawings or memories. I re-imagine these images and they become distilled through various etching processes to finally form my work.
