I am constantly inspired by the exquisite beauty of nature.
When I first moved to the Northern Rivers of NSW, I felt like I had come home. I found myself walking through the rainforest and reconnecting with something that I didn’t realise I had lost; a sense of the quiet, of the earth and the natural world around me.
Not only had I fallen in love with the beautiful surroundings here, but also the people and the extraordinary sense of community.
In this project I wanted to capture the feelings and thoughts we all share. The quotes in this book are from people that I have come to know and treasure, all whose personal journeys have brought them to this place and moment in time.
The artworks are based on fallen leaves that I have found around my home. They are small, intimate works of nature, inspired by my new surrounds, a new stage in my life and a return to my roots.
The artworks in this book were first exhibited to the public as part of Art Post Uki.
