Homeland is Presence shares short tales, photo stories, original remedies and rituals exploring foraging, nature and folklore through the recollections of a diverse group of women connecting cultural heritage and the natural abundance of Essex. From the legends of common Mugwort and Mersea island Wakame seaweed salad to Rosehip Masoor Dahl! The book was created as part of the Snapping the Stiletto Campaign in 2021.
Lora’s practice embraces interests in herbal art, explorative foraging, wild foods and plant medicine. She shares her research by re-telling, researching and reviving the wisdoms of the environment, through practical uses. Landscapes and the world of plants they are home to can be hard to navigate, so her creative practice takes the outside inside, inviting other people to join this journey, on her walks, by application of foraged materials in traditional and digital practice.
