Artist Statement
My recent work, Mapping the Walk presents artist as botanist and archivist of selective knowledge, recording loss in the natural world resulting from human activities. Organizing drawings and prints in the framework of an archive, the project documents and presents fragments of the natural world from a fine art perspective. I work on the island of Kea, Greece that is within one of the world’s 34 biodiversity hotspots with high concentrations of endemic species, often endangered. I draw the plants along a footpath that has been used for ritualistic processions since ancient times. Most of the once 30-mile footpath has been paved over in recent years and the rich variety of wildflowers no longer exists in the paved areas. 4 years ago there were plans to pave the remaining 2 miles of the footpath, but protests, petitions and the worsening economic situation have prevented the paving project to date. My own on going personal protest consists of a ritual walk of the path and drawing on sit
