Cheleigh Dunkerton- Water Baby
Moments in nature attribute to my sense of connection with the more-than-human world. A space where I can be myself in my wholeness, my full-beingness, in relationship with other beings. As I have deepened my connection to nature, and the nature within myself, I have felt a deep sense of belonging that reminds me that I am a part of this planet.
Establishing a deeper connection with the natural world, can also be a part of our support network. Holistic relationship with nature encompasses both nature’s ability to nurture us, through our contact with natural places and spaces, and our ability to reciprocate this healing connection through our ability to nurture nature.
Through these paintings I hope to capture the connection and magic of precious moments spent in and with nature.
