The Forest Is My Teacher

My recent trip to Pukaskwa National Park inspired what will become a new series about the Boreal Forest. I returned from this camping trip feeling very recharged and inspired to create. Pukaskwa is situated along the rocky shores of Lake Superior: picture towering cliffs, windswept spruce, secluded sandy beaches and lush boreal forests. I was in love! The way the setting sun peeked through dense, moss covered trees - very mystical. What resonated with me most about the boreal forest is that it is in a constant state of change. Growth - death - renewal - repeat. The forest itself is not ancient like I initially thought. It is regularly affected by insects, fires and other natural disturbances so it continually renews itself. Disturbance is integral to the forest. Without it there is no growth. I need to sit with this idea for longer; it’s so profound.

Where it's been: Part of solo show called "The Forest Is My Teacher" at Gallery 1313 in 2021.
