Global Fires

In recent years the roaring forest fires across the globe and the devastation of it all have impressed images upon the creative visions, which dance in my mind. It’s hard to see the videos of the beautiful trees and grasslands being destroyed. The frantic flight of birds and animals trying to escape the horror also touches my creative senses. My latest work for 2009 tries to capture with fabric the powerful nature of these fires.
