Tree Paintings and Wall Sculptures/Assemblage
Trees have always played a thematic subject matter in my works. Their meaning to me runs deep.
Sometimes my work has reflected the simple beauty of trees with filtered light and atmosphere, and sometimes the essence of trees has been created in a more abstract and poetic way.
Most of my paintings of trees are “leafless”. I prefer the graceful, skeletal bare trunks and limbs that lie beneath, that are hardly noticed, where life lies dormant…..waiting.
The three-dimensional works focus on my theme of “Tree Totems”. When environmental issues threaten the planets trees, all we may have left will be remnants to hang on our walls….
