Paintings Lapland

Paintings of the Arctic Circle in Northern Finland. Unpaintable glacial moraines and mile upon mile of conifers and lakes. Silence is the pivotal experience, pierced by the autumn colours of Ruska and a profoundly moving connection to Earth. Despite the infestations of mosquitoes and inhospitable terrain this landscape haunted me with its mysterious power. I came away struggling to know how to express it. Work was shown in Cornwall and several other exhibitions around the UK.
