As an artist my practice is rooted in landscape. I walk, draw, paint, write and film my encounters through the urban environment and the rural. I grew up in the West country, a place of beauty, boredom and economic division. The most exciting thing for us as teenagers was the local disco on a Friday night and waiting for the Top 40 on a Sunday tea-time, trying to tape it on our mono tape recorders. This lack of adventure led to walking, away from home. There were particular routes I would take often, places I got to know in detail. It was a kind of ‘mapping’ , charting the unknown parts of my surrounding landscape. To this day it is something I do on arrival in a new place, except now I make things that articulate what I find as artefact, as document as re-imagined memory of place. The teenage girl is still there, I can’t quite seem to shake her off, but its comforting to know I am still as curious and awkward and persistent.

In 2018 I have been walking and drawing in a wood in Fife and am now to be found on a farm, walking the fields and drawing the far wide views across the Forth.

  1. Hi Dominique. We spoke briefly at Pittenweem. You may recall I was very taken with the Scots Pines image you had on the floor. Sadly I couldn’t afford it, but if you should happen to do any other studies of the same – maybe a bit smaller and cheaper (sorry) – then I’d be really interested. They’re special trees.

  2. Hi,

    I’ve just joined Twitter for the sole purpose of messaging you re your work for sale on “Artistsupportpledge,” only to find that you cannot in fact be DM’ed there. 😩
    Could you please let me know how to get in touch about purchasing that work, if it is still available and if there are others in the same series/format.

    Thank you
