A note from the Artist
"Where we belong, the beauty of the landscape we should never take for granted. The highs and lows of life, the mountains that inspire us to challenge ourselves. The beautiful views from the peak and the wonder that draws us home. To the place and the people that belong to us and where we rest and grow. We meet people along the way who become part of our journey, some we take with us, some we leave behind, but their footprints remain. We are always on our journey home."
