I come from a rural Derbyshire background, and I was born and brought up in Great Longstone, in the White Peak, to a family with connections to the village dating back over 200 years. Though I eventually moved away from the village, I have continued to live in the Pennines, first in Lancashire, and then in County Durham where I now work as a watercolour artist.


When I was young, the extent of my world was the village and surrounding countryside, and because of my interest in land I became a surveyor. Over the years I have researched the history of land use and the changing landscape and developed an increased awareness of geology and weather, farming, mining and quarrying
