I take prints of trees and native flora using graphite and trace paper, incorporating them as collage, screen print and stitched pattern into my painted works. This meditative act of connecting to the earth through the felt sense and with sound vibrations (using my own voice), offers creates moments of stillness. Where I can experience the space between thinking and doing. Where I can feel present. Where I can feel the interconnectedness and oneness with the earth, hear the ancient whispers of the native flora and reflect on this conversation of beauty and healing.
