I am an artist because I believe passionately in the power of art to reawaken us and to encourage us all to become more present and engaged in our world. I know that in the very process of making art that matters, one’s belief in the power of art takes root. My art practice gives me the opportunity to combine my expertise as a visual artist with the extraordinary beauty that exists in the art of nature. In my solo studio work, I use my digital scanner to capture and enlarge the architectural intricacies of flower petals, plants, seaweed, shells and the living veins and dried skeletons of leaves. I sometimes combine this work with maps and other images to reflect the remarkable resemblance between botanical fragments, tree branches and roots, river deltas, topography, and features of human bodies.

Mia, I wanted to express my deep gratitude to you. The piece I took home yesterday is astonishing and as I know you saw yesterday, moves me deeply. I’ve spent much time already “seeing” many many things and then this morning I turned it upside down and saw more. There are hundreds of Angels, Guides, Fairies, Elves, Animals and other creatures I can’t put a name to. And when I pull back, I see it as a whole world. A world protected by these figures. I’m honoured to have your essence in my home. Jill Prescott CHt
