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.

We hail’d it in Gods name.'
