I link current thinking with historic creativity for the now.
I am actively engaged in research and interpretation of the landscape through both writing and teaching. Taking both current thinking and historic understanding of the role that landscape plays in our lives and our own understanding of place and bringing to it my own interpretation of how this can influence our lives today.
Cirencester Park, Cirencester.
After a recent visit, I have become completely obsessed by understanding this 18th century landscape. Created by one man and influenced by two others, it remains largely intact with only one other man involved in its evolution to what we see today. Marking the start of the move from the formal to the natural, it was inspired by the words “submit to nature and not nature to his design” Stephen Switzer and remains one of England’s most significant landscapes.
My research is on going, with a lecture and an article in the development.
