Charooal and Ink Drawing

About the 100 Day Project:
I drew in a set format for 10 minutes everyday for 100 days to practice drawing daily and explore my relationship to plant life. Taking cues from childhood memories and the old journals of biophillic ancestors: I planted Lupin, Sweetpea, Moonflower, Nasturtium and Gladioli and was kept on track with my daily practice by their constant growth. Other plants appear too, where I was away from home and guided by the plants around me.
The drawings are sometimes observational and realistic and at others abstract, instinctive or experimental - a document in what it is to draw everyday, through different moods and levels of focus; relying on a variety of approaches to pull my attention back to the plants. The project is a documentation of how we pay attention and cultivate reciprocal relationship with the natural world.
