A return to my Natural History series has evolved into using the book format to tell my story. Collected twigs, stones and seeds eventually find their way into my work, incorporated into painted panels combined of wood, canvas or paper. Elements are embellished by stitching and carefully “articulated” with photo-based prints to form an assemblage of visually related materials. The outcome is a unique visual syntax, which can be interpreted intuitively. My reference to language is intentional and many of my works are described as such in their titles.
