‘The Hand of God’ was made in response to the exhibition call, and took two years in the making.
It is a leather-bound book that contains three handwritten, illustrated poems and shares something of myself, my ongoing work with the Feminine and exploration of the creation stories.
While working through the complexities a work of this kind throws up, I’ve had many interesting discussions with professional and amateur theologians, from many different faiths and no faith, and continue to see and hear cultural references for the creation narratives literally everywhere I go...

The big question I'll leave you with is -

‘Would you leave the Garden of Eden?’

and if you would -
