Welcome to "The Spirit Woods"

The seed for this project was planted in 2018 when I was looking for something new and challenging to get the creative juices flowing.  I found my inspiration when I stumbled upon pictures on the Internet of some very unusual looking mushrooms.  I was struck by how they were both alien-like and yet oddly beautiful.  I began to play with the idea of incorporating the subject into my art. From there, the imagery spilled over into other areas.  I imagined an entire body of work devoted to the subject of nature spirits.  My fascination with moths also came into play and before I knew it, a narrative began to take form culminating in a journal with a series of accompanying art works.

The Video


I was fortunate to find a piece of music which lent itself to the making of this video.  I found the stop motion animation to be the biggest challenge. I took photographs of the nature spirit sculptures that I then printed, cut out and joined together with wire and tape to allow movement. I used photographs and some sketches for the backgrounds and other elements. All were altered in Photoshop to create a  uniform appearance.
