These works explore how we are connected to the environment and eventually pass back to her. I am fascinated by the passage from one state to the next. These works seek to capture that transition and explore the sense that we rejoin nature rather than disappear from it, leaving imprints or reflections behind. The works reveal the remnants of the human form in nature alongside the solace and beauty of being returned and reconnected. These are glimpses of that transition process.
You drift back to nature – to sky, to cloud, to water, to earth, to fire
It is a slow, peaceful, eerie passage
You do not leave this earth but return to it – dust to dust
I see your imprint
