The cat’s on his rounds.

Uisce faoi thalamh. Hidden. Buried.

In practising my Art, I am  attempting to uncover an artefact in this bog that belongs to me.

“…glimpsed with atavistic instinct…”

Our language, Culture and Landscape are all connected. I cannot separate them.

“…gan teanga: gan anam..”

Like the Early Christian Irish monks, I seek to describe and marvel at Nature and express my response to it. Then to explore that response. To imagine and re-imagine.

My visual art, poetry and music and language are intertwined.
