Every landscape has a unique architecture. My work displays an intimate series of precisely formed aspects of the Australian environment, particularly the Blue Mountains. These delicate lines are a narrative for the land, showing the geometric configuration that has evolved over 240 million years. The pockets of detail that lay concealed beneath the tree coverings display the insignificance of humanity in comparison to the robust world around; the textiles reveal the tactile nature of the mountains and their hidden textural detail. By using raw pencil and organic hints of colouration, the detail in the ancient earth becomes ever-powerful.
