Living on the Edge II is a work that has evolved from Pipe Clay Lagoon, a place where I have an intimate and sensorial connection. As I draw and explore the tidal line through walking, I incorporate marks, line, form and space to convey the natural movements of the environment, the patterns and rhythm in a complex system of all inhabitants. Through the act and process of walking and drawing I have become immersed in the entanglement; each sinuous line has become a deep personal and physical experience connecting and engaging me to this place.
