It was good to spend the May long weekend on Bowen because nature and I needed to get in touch. It’s been months since we were last on the island, when normally Boris and I visit every six weeks or so. I went for long walks every day, and saw many beautiful things.

I think some of these elements will soon find their way into my work. Those mushrooms and the fern are crying out to be reproduced in paper.
