The works chosen for this show cross over 2 different surfaces, ceramic and wood. Both coming from the earth. My connection to the land is expressed often through a magnified view of a walk or moment spent within a landscape. Attention is often towards the ground on which I walk and how the light changes elements on different surfaces. I often collect remnants of trees and sea life, which I photograph and sketch to record the moment. It is the fragility of the natural environment in which we live that often saddens me as well as invokes me to make the visual response.
