Landscape Drawings

Acrylics, collage, coffee, pen and ink on paper

The connection one feels to place is an abstract notion, often expressed with regard to memories, habits, and experiences. I use visual elements from cultural myths and stories, local textile patterns, native plants and animals and create imaginary ecosystems where typically unrelated matter co-exist in harmony. The photographic images of unfamiliar landscapes transformed into visions of deep-rooted places of origin through my intricate drawings.
