"I have been drawing since I was a child, and using my palms and fingers to move the material on the paper always made sense to me. There is a blending effect I can achieve with my fingers that no tools bring about." - Forman (Photo/Francois Lebeau)

"I think of water as a metaphor for life - constantly transforming, both fearsomely and beautifully." -Forman

The Maldives

Drawings from her 2013 journey

Forman finds juxtaposition in the turbulence and tranquility of severe weather.

"I am grateful to have the opportunity to visit such remote places and enjoy the challenge of conveying their beauty." - Forman
