 This work is a series of experiments, of creating maps and journeys, both real and imagined, literal and emotional, with wet cyanotype, in significant landscapes. I create these forms under the sun, so the image is already exposing whilst being created, giving a large tonal range, and making the finished work the result of an instinctive and organic process.

 The maps are then washed out in the sea. The first images were made at Sangette, Northern France, a place layered with history of journeys and dreaming, the pre- Jungle site of transit for many, whilst working with Art Refuge UK.
