'This Ancient Land: The Grampians'
Anyone who has been bushwalking in the Grampians will know that its atmosphere, drama and beauty are unique and striking. The heights, vast panoramic views, rock-strewn slopes and cliff-shadows communicate a sense of the immense age and history of the place. The forested hillsides, patterns of stones and textures of its particular plants and trees catch and fascinate the eye. It is aspects of all these things that I try to capture in my work, which pays tribute to the old soul of this region.
