Artist Statement:
 
"This series of drawings and paintings has been completed over the past 4 years . The works, are in the main, large scale pastel and charcoal drawings on paper. What started small seemed to evolve over time while gaining confidence in scale and medium. There are two themes, park deer and gardens; originally devised separately but both connected by the Phoenix Park.
 
Living beside the Phoenix Park for over 20 years and indeed in a house once part of the Farmleigh Estate I have had the wonderful pleasure of visiting the park often, absorbing it’s atmospheres. I have been drawing and photographing deer and gardens intermittently over this time. The garden pastels are inspired by the exotic western section of the Farmleigh walled gardens and by yearly visits to Cornwall and especially the Lost Gardens of Heligan and of course Lindy’s garden. I have taken the artistic licence in combining plants that do not appear in the same season."
