During this period of Covid-19, I made a daily circular walk of about 3 miles from my home high in the Cotswold Hills. It's a walk of rich variety; being open fields, birch copses, valleys and steep hills. Hedgerows have changed, and offered food and beauty.

This is one stop in my Lockdown Walk, a view across the arable fields, where I witnessed the sowing, growth, harvest and recent tilling. It is home to deer, hares and birds of all varieties. A rich land, holding expansive landscapes and joyful details in found objects. A landscape fit for every human emotion.

A daily, circular walk of about 3 miles has a rich variety of open fields, birch copses, valleys and steep hills. I foraged quietly and hopefully for wild garlic, elder-flowers, blackberries and sloes.

This is one stop in my Lockdown Walk, a young birch copse, quite different from the ancient footpath you stumble down the valley to reach it. Its always cool, and the new spring leaves were bright green and sunlit, and really quiet. Almost ‘cathedral like’ in it’s welcome and ability to hold. As summer progressed, it became darker, the sun only catching in the heights.

Paper, pens, gold leaf, hand stitch

h: 50 w: 50 d: 10 (cms).

A daily circular Lockdown Walk of 3 miles, calms and restores. What may have begun as an angry stomp, by half way, has softened, to the raising of the eyes and shoulders.

Climbing over the ancient slab of limestone to the home stretch, my pockets are now full of treasures to methodically line up on the Studio shelves. My daily haul!

These cut-out paper feathers contain their own history, each drawn on, gilded, hand-stitched and knotted using vintage silk threads. The rhythm of the days are invested in this piece transferring peace and hope to anyone who cares to absorb.

Box framed in limed wood from sustainable sources.

A daily circular Lockdown Walk of 3 miles, calms and restores. What may have begun as an angry stomp, by half way, the breaths are longer the shoulders are raised and the eyes, outward looking.

Each paper feather is hand cut and contains its own time and history. They are slowly hand-stitched and knotted. The rhythm of the days are invested into this piece, transferring peace and hope to anyone who cares to absorb.
