Further information

Over a period of 11 years, I have sat beneath a powerful grey mangrove in a remote lagoon near Pittwater, NSW. On thick hand-made paper, I have carved her trunk with a belt sander, digging through the ink to reveal her – a scarification of carved lines that build a bridge over the vast landscape towards my inner world.
