"The way human beings alter the natural landscape in order to travel across it - highways and railways and bridges - is endlessly fascinating. I draw inspiration for my work from these altered landscapes, creating abstract impressions of places which have meaning for me. My aim is not to depict a specific place in factual detail, but rather to illustrate what it feels like to exist in a particular environment, whether travelling through or staying a while."
