I continue working with scraps and remnants and recycled materials reusing rather than abusing our resources. The stitches and thread reflect the intrusion of humans into the rain forest.

I am amazed at the lushness of the canopy and the vines. The variety of the colour green and the textures awe me. The senses are overwhelmed and I want to touch everything.

Little light reaches below the canopy but the death of a tree brings sunlight into the forest.

The forest floor is relatively clear of vegetation because of the low sunlight. The puddles of water collect after rain. Mulch quickly decays.
