The intimate landscapes featured below are available as original artworks only.

The nature of ink making means that the inks themselves are subject to many variables and their exact shades and depths are impossible to reproduce. 

Made from detritus gathered from the home and landscape these inks include; copper, eucalyptus, blackthorn, iron, avocado, onion skin, turmeric, acorn, salt and nettles.

between you
& me

The monoprints featured below were made during pregnancy, through these prints I wanted to explore the lack of boundary between myself and the new being growing inside of me. Cell-like and ambiguous, these prints were made using found matter from the landscape to further explore the lack of boundaries between us and nature.

caves.

As individual experience and potential for experience within this transition to parenthood is vast, the key idea that I found held the most draw for me was the concept of 'liminality'. Liminality as an inbetween state, representing the threshold between what was, and what is yet to come. I found this place to be both immensely exciting and terrifying simultaneously.

"In anthropology, liminality is the quality of ambiguity or disorientation that occurs in the middle stage of a rite of passage, when participants no longer hold their pre-ritual status but have not yet begun the transition to the status they will hold when the rite is complete."

In exploring this idea of liminality I began to draw inspiration from doorways and entrances which symbolised this idea of leaving one space and entering into a new place. Being that I tend to visit a lot of places with rocks, caves began to feature heavily within these new drawings. These four caves are monoprints of caves we found in the Ariege, France.

nests.

"Although the woman's transformation to motherhood is completed with birth, birth sets in motion a new archetypal constellation that reshapes the woman's life down to it's very depths." The Great Mother, E. Neumann
