Sacred Willow is inspired by my love and passion for Mother Nature and our environment. The delicate patterns and shadows represent the fragility of our natural environment, the hemp fibre woven through found, disregarded wire, encouraging the need to salvage materials headed for landfill.
It's a homage to our indigenous people and the need to learn and understand the deep respect and customs our indigenous people live by in harmony with nature, nurturing and nourishing for future generations. After all Mother Nature is our teacher, our inspiration, our happy place, our food to heal our spirit and souls.
