Alex and Zoe
My ongoing body of work "Natural Tendencies" studies the complex and symbiotic relationship between humans and the natural world. My portraits and landscapes often reflect a sense of timelessness. I typically juxtapose solitary figures with an almost overwhelming landscape to suggest the environment as being active and significant in both the composition and concept of the image. My roles as mother, wife, artist and environmentalist inform my work. I am acutely aware of the precarious nature of our shifting environment, of the fragility of life and the ephemerality of childhood.
