Artist's description:

Pilatus is another special mountain for me, full with legends and myths. From my balcony I can see the summit and at the 1am the lights go out... There is writing on the top, from someone that used the map, love finding these little messages that are only visible when you open the page. This collage is produced on Rokreuz Swiss Landeskarte dated 1971.

The Idea for the maps, was to put the mountain, visually back into the contours of the maps. When you walk in the landscape the mountains surround you and feel safe with the map to guide you through your journey. Also I see people, objects, faces in the mountains I wanted to play with the forms, which collage allows me to do. I am a British born expressionist artist, living and working in Switzerland since 2007. Like most of the British explorers that arrived in Switzerland before me, I also found the Swiss Alps capturing my imagination and fell under their majestic spell.

My main influences are the landscapes of Ferdinand Hodler and German expressionist artists such as Kirchner and Beckmann. These along with the book written by Heinrich Harrer (The White Spider) have influenced my creativity and inspired me to use my own unique style to represent the Swiss mountains and landscape.
