It is now 2021 And I am beginning a new series of work inspired by my several years of volunteering and working at Woodwynn Farm in central Saanich, BC. 

Visually this is a complete departure from my past work but it shares the same  history and focus. It’s one that I have been mulling over all the time at Woodwynn as I watched the seasons and new growth come and go. 

If it looks primitive or ancient then I feel I have succeeded.
