Papertrails was a twelve-month residency project. During 2007 Jane Ponsford worked on a series of temporary site-specific artworks throughout the commons and woodlands of Elmbridge in Surrey. The project was inspired by the natural environment and aimed to celebrate the particular beauties of the local landscape through the seasons. While the focus of the work was the woods and commons, the residency had an inspiring studio base at the wonderful redundant Tudor church of St George in Esher.
