This work is about grief, resilience, and recovery, as seen through my connection to a unique landscape in northeast Florida.

In 2017, I became a stepmother whilst losing my own child, at forty-five the chances of having my own child were over. The emotional trauma I faced led to a sense of alienation and lack of support.

Through visiting the nearby Timucuan Ecological Preserve I found refuge for contemplation and self-reflection.

This project represents a journey of healing and the search for my own ‘sacred’ after experiencing loss.

This landscape of the preserve played a vital role in my personal transformation and serves as a reminder of the restorative bond with the sacrality of the natural world.
