Created in response to Johanna Bell’s words, ‘Hope is a curlew/migrating south’.

I love the shape of the Eastern Curlew, especially their distinctive beaks. I researched and did lots of then cut shapes from a monoprint of plants in my garden and pieces of text about birds from an old encyclopedia, torn into shapes roughly resembling land masses that curlews would pass over in their long migratory journeys.
