I walk. I find the story in the walk. I consider the shape of the walk and how it shapes me, my thinking, my socialness. And then I map out the wilderness of that space, layering drawings, writing and ephemera gathered along the way. These are cartographic collages, yet the figure dominates. Who are these people who embody the mood of my walks? They are both rambler and scribe, seeker and storyteller. Feelings are worn on their exteriors. I am interested in how the act of mapping out the space of a walk embodies the particularities of perspective – visual, cultural and emotional. Describing a place tells us not only where but also who we are.

– Mary Jones, 2022
