The Wandering

My work encapsulates an intimate relationship with the organic environment through the practice of foraging. I never pick, break or cut foliage from its habitat; my collections comprised of debris, scattered by howling wind. This work, as an open love letter to creation, draws connections between a romantic relationship and that which I have with my environment. Both cultivating safety, comfort, a sense of peace.
