My father and sister have lived in Shropshire for many years and in my 20s I also lived there. The sounds of Curlews calling across the hill was a common sound and one that seems to capture the atmosphere of the place. In recent years I have worked closely with The Twenty Twenty Gallery in Much Wenlock, Shropshire – it has been the venue for many of my exhibitions. In the spring of 2014 they kindly invited me to work at The Shippen (the Shropshire word for cattle shed), their most beautifully converted barn.

Surrounded by fields and hedges that trill with the sounds of birds, the most enjoyable part of my stay was the sound of the Curlews. The resulting print features The Shippen in the background.
