Elizabeth Ashworth Artist statement:
Most of my works combine my interests in mixed media art and the environment. I create them using not only objects found in nature but also those discarded by people. I first saw Arbutus trees two years ago when I moved to Sooke and their bark became
one of my favourite finds for making art. I loved the bark's coppery colour and how its thickness can range from tissue paper to cardboard. I collect it (from the ground, not the tree) when it is shed in August and make works inspired by the various flat and curled pieces.
