As a lover of nature living in the city, I find inspiration in people’s gardens as I go on walks. They bring peace and tranquillity apart from a serene balance to city living. One garden caught my attention with its magnificent, tall, white, smooth barked Lemon-Scented Gum. It stands like a hand reaching triumphantly skyward, reigning over a mostly native garden, where amongst other things, stands a stout Grass Tree, Kangaroo Paws, Bottle-Brush and a single very attractive, Japanese Maple that seems quite out of place. Of course, the kingdom of this tree is attended by many birds and butterflies, so there are touches representing them too. The animals bring motion picture stories to gardens and just add to the reward of immersing ourselves in them.
Handmade mulberry fibre (Kozo) and banana leaf Asian papers. Trunk amateur is from Hahnemuhle 300 (NOT) cotton, mould-made paper because of its pliability. Uniquely, includes some actual Japanese Maple leaves embedded in the making of the trunk bark mulberry papers. Framed in a five sided clear acrylic case allowing the art to be viewed from all angles.
