Earlier this spring, I was a recipient of a snakes_1Georgian Bay Land Trust - King Family Bursary, an annual award that aims to promote knowledge and appreciation of the the bay through creative or scientific projects.  The GBLT is an organization that was formed to preserve and protect the unique archipelago and bodies of water along the eastern shore of Georgian Bay. 

Through my landscape photographs of the coast, I am examining the relationship between science, history and art;  my visual references are rocks that have been transformed in often violent ways, where the patterned shapes in the present-day strata mirror the forces that created them.  Needless to say, it's been a wonderful summer of boating and exploring, and I am thrilled to have been chosen for this award.  This collection of images will form an exhibition and publication in the coming year.  I'll keep you up to date as the project progresses.
