Diary from the Dempster
Watercolour and Ink, folding sketchbook, Arctic Circle, 2010

In the fading Arctic light at dusk, at a time when there is little more than four hours of 'darkness' each night, I began to unravel the vast landscape of Canada on my first night on the tundra. With materials at hand, rugged up and alone in the landscape, the valley and the distant mountains provided the perfect subject.
