In her work Flora is trying to evoke an ancient and numinous landscape. She is inspired by medieval romance poetry, the progression of a quest and along the way a vision that stills. She is interested in the nurturing and destructive aspects of the landscape, its nests and chasms, its sanctuaries entwined with sharp thorns. She likes to imagine its secret face when the daylight fades and the creatures come out to roam. She is feeling for a lost magic; a glimpse through trees of the white hart.
