Landmarks and Edgelands

My current projects Landmarks and Edgelands are exploring the landscape from different perspectives.  Landmarks, working from maps and local knowledge, is looking at place names that relate to the land and its features, Reynards, Hagg, Berry and Ramsden currently in my sketchbook. Edgelands is investigating abandoned sites along the River Holme that were once 'hives' of industry now abandoned for nature to recapture, havens for wildlife unlike much of the adjoining farm land.
The Edgelands project will hopefully be exhibited with Lateral in their Transitions exhibition in 2016.
