Lake Ullswater is roughly 14 km / 9 miles in length, and is one of my favourite Lakes in Cumbria, where I grew up. Ever since I was young I have been swimming in its waters and I always wondered if I would be able to swim it from end to end. With an artist bursary award from VARC (Visual Arts in Rural Communities) I completed this ambition, and created a series of Artworks to describe the experience. In this series of 25 I experimented with creating symbols that referenced the various parts of the landscape, and my physical and psychological training.
