Statement of Intent - Landscape Fellowship - 13th May 2021
Tiddesley Wood is a 6,000 year old ancient woodland near Pershore, close to where I live, previously owned by the Abbots of Pershore Abbey. It is currently in the hands of Worcestershire Wildlife Trust.
In winter, the frosts and mists transform it into a wonderland. I call it my happy place where, in a world of constant change and uncertainty, I can find solace by immersing myself amongst the trees as they stand majestic and patient. I like to capture those quiet, early morning moments when the mists create a timeless atmosphere, adding mystery to the woodland whilst the frosted carpet protects the dormant life under my feet.
I loved creating this body of work, which allows me to portray the calmness and beauty of my local woodland during the sometimes harsh and lonely winter months.
