'of all the lessons I've learned in my months with Mable this is the greatest of them all; that there is a world of things out there - rocks trees and stones and grass and all things that crawl and run and fly. They are all things in themselves, but we make them sensible to us by giving them meanings that shore up our views of the world.'
Helen Macdonald in H is for Hawk, Vintage London 2014
I am a textile artist. My inspiration is born of my love of the landscape. My work is driven by my concern about how I see humankind using the earth's resources with seemingly little regard for who comes next. We seem to have lost our sense of living with nature, of being part of it, we have lost our reverence for nature; we have become detached. The work is intended to make us more aware of our presence, it does not offer answers.
