Keepsake (n)
'A small item that reminds a person of a specific event or time.'

I collect natural objects from the various places I visit. They form a personal catalog, which go to for inspiration and reflection. These are my keepsakes and each treasured item provides a link to a moment where I was consciously experiencing the natural world. 

'Keepsake' was an exhibition celebrating my personal connection to this collection of items and memories. The works were exhibited at the Council of Objects, Adelaide, and included paper cut beetles, porcelain sculptures, original studies and artist books.
