I walk in my local woods.
I am a walking artist.
I have a process for my walks, a system of making field notes. Drawing, writing, collecting, embroidering, making maps from memory.
It is a process of coming to know, or asking ‘What is going on here?’
It uses sensory awareness and is about slowing down and taking notice.
Let go. Hold on.
It is about gathering in situ and reflecting in the studio, distancing and coming near.
making, marking, gathering, noting
It is reflexive.
There is a participatory element, facilitating other people’s fascination.
