“The forest is a place of universal knowledge and abundance.”
My obsession with trees started early in my life. My first vivid memories when I was very young are of a weeping willow in our back yard. It was my get away, my secret hiding place. When I was tucked in the limbs of that tree I felt safe and connected.
Throughout my life I sought out places with trees to find solace. Just being in the presence of trees makes me feel calm and connected to the earth.
I never seem to tire of their endless flowing shapes, textures and dancing shadows.
My hope is that my art will awaken others to the beauty that is all around us and see how connected we are to the earth, to nature and to each other. Hopefully as we recognize and appreciate the beauty and value of our natural world we will be inspired to protect it.
