During my walks  I can’t take a lot of materials, and make use of a camera to take photos.

 I originally used them as sketch material, but with the Collages I use them as the main material. The photos can be a combination of two photos I put together with photoshop before I use them.

My work reflects my journey and my evolution in looking and communicating with landscape.

The elements that particularly speak to me in the landscape are the light, the colours, the changes during one day or during the seasons of the year, the vastness of the space, the great variety of natural forms and shapes in the landscape, large and small. In my investigation of nature for my collages I aim to combine the use of photo fragments as the basis of a composition, working together with drawing to create a harmonious unity. The collages have been inspired by a 3000 kilometer walk over old pilgrims’ routes and ancient Roman roads in Spain.
