From the artist

So often I have travelled the Midlands and have never tired of the variety of trees, shrubs and grasses and the 'influences' on their existence. We adapt to our environment. The Midlands is a strong example. An extended drought from the 1970s has taken its toll, together with insects, farming practices and animals. Thankfully, these 'influences" are being addressed. In a visual way I am recording this process.
