I usually explore and draw the mountains and local landscape in the company of my husband - the sculptor Chris Williams. As you can see from the exhibition image and poster for our latest collective show WINDSWEPT, our work is different yet echoes the forms and compositions of each other.
The organic forms I draw can be seen replicated in the new sculptures by Williams. The wood for these particular pieces comes from the local felling of diseased trees and land clearance for turbine installation.
Williams often wanders off into wooded areas and explores the tree formations and most recently the terrain of the felled areas, whilst I search for a particular spot that gives me a powerful or compelling vista.
When our work is shown together, it's an opportunity for me to see the landscape through another's eyes and this helps me to re-examine my own view - I am more able to see the wood for the trees almost.
WINDSWEPT continues at the www.facebook.com/workersgallery Thu - Sat 10-5 until 29th July 2017.
