Isla aims to record the essence of what confronts her senses in the presence of nature at its most elemental.  Sketching and documenting her subject and committing her observations to memory, she returns to a pared down approach back in the studio environment.  Through my improvised and sustained engagement with materials and mark-making she tries to convey the sheer physicality of her original experience and a sense also of the monumental and furtive in nature.
