Inspired from photographs and images / sketches, recorded and acquired in Autumn /Winter 2018,  in various places, from  the Featherbed’s to Mount Pelier (Hellfire Club) , and  Massey’s Wood, they’re mixed with stories remembered and retold from boyhood memories ,about the the area. Other works are based on thoughts of how difficult life can be,
