In My Back Yard

Walking in our mini nature reserve I see things that in my haste Iíve often overlooked in the past. Their shapes and colours captivate and I am compelled to record their fleeting beauty. This Spain I came to live in, with itís bold and brightness, has revealed a subtlety I could only see when I became quiet inside. Traditional womens work, crochet, lace making, embroidery, sewing. Feminine energies, often overlooked in the masculine drive of the world, leave a delicate legacy to be cherished. This energy I pass on in my works. The things we throw away, broken, used, heading for landfill, have another life. Together with natural elements collected on my walks they become memories held in time. I look for the stories, the imperfect, the unfinished edge, the stain, these speak of life and itís transience and imperfections, a Wabi-sabi** aesthetic. I bring these elements and concepts together to create a piece of art with intention that has a life beyond itís surface. Infused into itís very fabric are positive intentions and feminine energies.
