With fear of climate change and the arrival of Covid-19, 2020 encouraged me to coddiwomple - to travel purposefully forward to an as-yet-unknown destination. En route I discovered the difference between hopelessness and helplessness; recognising that courage leads to action and hope is what comes next.

With hope in mind, I have created bright, multi-layered narratives. Each is a visual haiku of the memories I yearn to keep and dearly hope persist. The works display my continuing appreciation of nature and her ability to re-calibrate and rejuvenate, without ignoring the undesirable aspects of: a world without; a world with too much; and a world which cannot sustain.
