Abstract landscape based paintings; environment based installations; memories of place and time interwoven with colour and light. Most recent art work: as part of Gateways Festival, Co Wicklow, used photographs taken during 2008 study of award-winning Special Area of Conservation - Fenor Bog.

Watson's recreation of the spatial depth in the artwork, through sound, bridged the 80 year gap and created an immediacy and intimacy between audience and artist that was palpable.
