‘Footfall’ uses data collected by Tom Fairfield, tracking Pine Marten in woodlands along the Welsh Border, near Hay-on-Wye and in the Vyrnwy Forest. The beautiful papers with the animal prints were created by the animals, as part of this research, and donated by Tom to allow me to create a series of artworks based on his findings.

The haiku was written especially by poet Philip Gross.

Tom Fairfield undertook the Pine Marten research (2008-13) with funding from Forestry Commission Wales, Forestry Commission England and Forest Research.
