How Like An Angel

The Finzi Society invited me to put on a solo exhibition to commemorate the centenary of the birth of the composer Gerald Finzi. Inspired by his setting of Dies Natalis by the eighteenth-century poet Thomas Traherne, I made a number of carvings and prints based on my drawings of gannets and seabirds on the Bass Rock and islands in the Firth of Forth.

Many of my carvings since then have been influenced by drawings made on later expeditions to draw seabirds.
