Artwork Statement

''These pieces, the first Habitat series, were my immediate and unconsidered response to a talk given by an environmental scientist on the subject of arboreal mammals and their old growth forest habitat. The connotation being tree hollows. A biodiverse ecosystem begins with variation in the landform, which produces the variety of vegetation in-turn providing diverse habitat and forage. Of particular interest are the nooks, hollows and crevices formed in the tree trunks of old growth forests. These are the habitat for many arboreal mammals. The loss of habitat through forest clearing is the concern of the vessels in the Habitat series'. The artist 1998
