About this project

With this miniature tapestry, I address issues connected to the landscape, in danger from climate change and the predations of humans. Sometimes using foraged materials such as ash seeds and leaves. I contemplate the losses we may suffer unless we can actively work to protect wild areas. I see the natural materials as the captives or pawns of humans; I allude to the devastation of the landscape which may result from our thoughtless actions.
