These images show my responses to Highgreen, Tarset, Northumberland, and its magical surroundings. This lovely home, set in the Northumberland National Park, is one that I have visited over the past 15 years. These works, begun in 2013 and completed in 2015, will give evidence of the passing of the seasons, the magic of the light and space experienced there, and a personal expression of love and appreciation for all that it embodies.
