Woods are my core interest. Through working and walking in woods I aim to explore the historical, ecological and symbolic importance they hold for people. My regional areas of interest are the remnant ancient woods of south London, known as the Great North Wood, southern England including Blean Woods and the New Forest, the woods of western Ireland, the Caledonian pine forests and the mountain and lowland forests of central and eastern Europe.
I post pieces exploring our relationship with woods, their conservation and wildlife.
I would encourage anyone with an interest in the places I cover to add comments and any further information you may have.
