Listen to the sound of a soft shadow
creeping across the landscape
blurring the mountains.

Listen to the sigh of a day in limbo
like a held breath when all is stilled
no voices raised.

Listen to the sound of a solar eclipse
no birds sing in the trees, no lambs bleat
even the sea is still.

Listen to the silence.
Then the sun brings light and laughter back.
And birdsong fills the air again.



I am a textile artist, living in and inspired by the incredible North Wales scenery. My paintings, photographs and writing is informed and inspired by the myths, legends, flora and fauna of the wild places.
