I followed the cows around the chalkland meadows, drawing as I went, trying to capture their bulk, their shape, their movements, their "cowness". Helping a cow in labour allowed me to portray the intimate bond between mother and calf or a newborn's faltering first steps to suckle. Over the years, I witnessed the daily life of these part domestic, part wild beasts both as individuals and as a herd.
The act of drawing allowed me to share time and being with the creatures and the landscape of the farm. These pictures are the creative product of that experience; they embody a timeless memory of a place, a life; themselves embodying countless pasts and memories.
