This series of drawings focuses on the impact of ash dieback disease on the landscape of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, burning the locations of ash trees out of maps of the local area, giving a strong sense of loss.
This drawing is of the old hospital site (near Grassington). Gold leaf has been added to some locations as there is a glimmer of hope that 5-10% of the trees will survive due to genetic diversity.
