Carrifran Series

Carrifran is a bow shaped valley in the Moffat hills in border country.

This valley is the site of a regeneration of the habitat which perhaps once existed over 6000 years ago. Much of the planting has been done over the past 10 years or more from seeds collected from species found as near to the site as possible. Pollen samples were taken from Rotten Bottom Bog to identify what trees grew there in the past.

Much of the work made is inspired by the wildness of the place and the idea of  imagining an environment which once existed and the determination of the people to create or recreate something for future generations.
