All these portraits made from material who came directly from the earth. Nothing taped, nothing glued, just Mother Nature balancing delicately on itself. The actual act of creating each original piece, for this artist, is therapeutic, spending lots of time outside walking and foraging, truly in the moment, her eyes scanning every square inch of my surroundings. After finish the piece, she document it with a photograph, being very careful not to bump the table and Mother Nature’s house of cards. The last step is to recycle it all back into the earth or into my next piece. Forage your neighborhood for fallen bits or do some snipping from your own garden, find a flat surface, and see where it takes you!
