  • Love comes from our most primal survival needs. It is a symbol of our bonds to family, to procreation, to tie us to the Earth itself and bring us back to it. Life comes from love. We all have buried roots.

    In the woodland burial grounds where I walk, where my mother is buried, where my family visit, and where I too will lie beneath the ground one day and feed my bones back to the life that lives in that place, I am filled with love.

    Woodland photographs, along with family letters, remembrances and more personal family photos formed part of my interactive installation art piece Buried Roots of Love at the Seasons of Love exhibition run by The Creative Collective in conjunction with Love is the Law Magazine's pre-launch party in London's East End over Valentine's this year.
