Artist statement: “The richness and sanctity of a wild landscape, the value of intact places have always sustained and nurtured me physically and spiritually. I engage a creative process that is at times fluid and intuitive, at times measured and intentional. I move from painting a depiction of place to conveying an inward journey of connections: between people and place, and between past and present, making invisible visible. Impressions "from the heart", ultimately is rooted in my experience, work process, kindled by reality and sprung from the senses.”
- April Ponsford
