I am beginning a new series exploring mine (human’s) relationship with the natural environment.
It is a long way to go before it is a series but I thought I would share with you one of the first pieces.
Your feedback and responses are welcome.

Thank you for your encouragement, I am intrigued also how it will turn out, the process can give you surprises.
Also, working with a poet for the recent Colab exhibition in Bendigo was a revolutionary experience for me and her poem got me to a tee! Inspiring me to delve deeply.
Hi James, the piece was made in order to display my wearable art, silk scarves particularly, and by doing so referencing the bush where I work in. So far I have made three forms, each made from my handmade,paper. The,paper is dyed with flora such as eucalyptus leaves and other native flora that I collect. I also add pieces of flora in the paper making process.
As I have been working on these forms the desire to explore my reasons why and how I am creating my art has been in my mind. And so I now am planning on using the forms as pictured here and also combining them in various ways with the scarves and myself, in a more ethereal way, both in the bush and in studio.
Thank you for detailing the process your art is undergoing. Wonderful to know these aspects Sharon, and I can see how this works beautifully not only as a means of displaying your work but as an extension of it. It is hard to incorporate and assimilate the human element in the Australian bush and this is a very eloquent way of approaching the problem. All the best with the project!
Hi Sharon, this is intriguing; can you tell us more about the project? Is it sculpture, or is it installation made specifically to be photographed?
