Fast forward 6 months and I found a fellow artist within walking distance of home with a flatbed press who was happy to not only show me some unconventional ways of printing that would suit my limited capacity but also to assist me in exploring how these would suit my work.
In 2016 with both my children living overseas, I decided to make for each of them a small concertina book of the indigenous plants around me. Plants they had grown up with and identified as home. My exploration of a new way of working was beginning to take shape.
I quickly realized that our seasons are not expressed by autumn leaves, bare branches, blossom and leafy green but the change of light and colour, along with accompanying flowers and seeds.
