The Poet’s Nest
This print is a tribute to the late Philosopher, writer, and unique mind of John Moriarty, whose work I came across only in the last few years. I’ve been bringing his book Dreamtime with me when I go on an artist retreat. His beautiful writings and ways of seeing the world have taught me so much and heavily influenced this body of work. I know I still have a lot to learn from John's Writing.. Moriarty is so connected to nature and has helped me connect too..He lives on in so many ways. The hazel is known in folklore as the poet's tree here the sapling represents John's wisdom.
This particular story told by Martin Shaw really moved me and inspired this print & “The First Morning” also from this collection
