I am inspired by the natural world. I collect materials gently discarded by nature’s cycle of regeneration; I search for colours, shapes, patterns and textures; stories and energy; rhythms and symbols of change. Bark that twists and curls as it falls from the trees, shedding its past and revealing strength in its future, telling us the heat of summer is close. Seagrass that has lost its grip on the ocean floor, washing up onto the sand, tangled and salty, colours fading day by day under the power of the sun.
Collecting, designing and making is a slow process which connects me to the cyclic patterns of the landscape. Through my practice I wish to inspire others to pause for a moment, take a breath; to quietly observe the beauty of nature and feel one’s own connection to the gentle rhythms of the Earth.
