"I am intrigued by the fleeting balance between strength and fragility in nature. Drawing inspiration from the natural environment I bear witness to the beauty, interdependence, and sanctity of all creation. I seek to share this glory with viewers so that they may also pause and reflect, and feel as if they are here, in the moment.” PatriciaBanks - Canada
