Edge of the Forest Series
“Edge of The Forest” Series Artist Statement
This series is inspired by a special part of my childhood, the delicate vegetation and fauna at the edge of the forest. There I found small frogs and berries, while hares darted in the dappled shade. Dark and deep, the forest was a secret world, too forbidding for a lone child. But the “sous-bois” had its own mysteries, the surprise of hazelnuts and wild strawberries, the buttercups and tiny mosses, and the wonder that such a complete world could exist between the forest and the road. It taught me to look at nature’s minutest details, the coil of a stem, the camber of a leaf, a drop of dew: this is the enchantment I hope to translate for you this spring.
