I have long been inspired by places which are special to me. Places which are off the beaten track or which instill the feeling of having discovered somewhere secret. I'm sure you all have these places too.
For me, some of them are from childhood, hidden places to play. Some are local, such as islands on the river, across the sluice gates. Some are in familiar places, like Cornwall; well hidden coves and secret paths to stone piles and ruined tin mines. And some places exist only in the imagination.
I'm sure everyone has their own reason to visit their own secret places. For me, pursued constantly by anxiety as a result of Aspergers, I like to visualise places of safety. My own oases of calm in an otherwise chaotic and overwhelming world.
I began to realise last year that I could create, in print form, representations of these special, secret and safe places in a way which might bring some calm to my life and even perhaps others.
