Artist Statement

Mother and daughter explore and make in response to St Peter and St Paul in Newchurch. Mother reflects on her own childhood, and skills passed down from her own mother and grandmother, foragers and makers. If our precious habitats are to survive, it is by re-enchanting nature for our very young.image001-1
