    The Place Between

    Earth Ochre, foraged earth pigments, hand ground and painted onto linen that is then appliqued and stitched, 17” x 13”.

    My work investigates how people mark the land and how we come to know “place”.
    I am interested in patterns of settlement and how land is structured by humans and by
    nature.
    Several years ago, a friend introduced me to the word “Ecotone”. An ecotone is an area
    where contrasting ecosystems butt up against one another and meet. This creates
    energetic space…the line where meadow meets forest, the transition of land to water,
    the active movement of tree lines shifting,,…
    The works exhibited in Touch, have a sense of boundaries, edges, and the meeting of
    two distinct communities. The works are made with earth pigments found and collected
    in several remote locations.
