I found a stand of melaleuca clinging to the rocks along a wild stretch of beach on the north coast of NSW; branches twisted and deformed by an unforgiving wind; desiccated and brittle for want of water. Dead now, these trees bear witness to a life - like many other lives - on the edge, and a struggle to survive in less than ideal circumstances. This melaleuca forest formed the starting point for the woodblock prints in this exhibition. In the working process I discovered that struggle can result in rich complexity, in elegance and grace.
