Above the Artic Circle, Ships and  Ice
My favourite place on earth is anything above the Artic Circle. I absolutely love it! It’s so different and alien to anything I know.
It’s a beautiful, deadly , icy wildness. After my earlier paintings of mountains & Norwegian fjords I got a bit obsessed with
myths, folklore, explorers and the early days of ships and people’s with that harsh environment. Plus one of my favourite
poems is Coleridge’s - Rime of the Ancient Mariner. And as you can see that obsession got the better of me.

‘At length did come an Albatross,

Thorough the fog it came,

As if it had been a Christian soul,

We hail’d it in Gods name.'


           The Rime of the Ancient Marnier

               by Samuel Tayler Coleridge.
