A couple of years ago I started a project. It was a series of trees in various mediums from embroidery to paint. Trees are a favorite subject of mine & I find it calming to create them. Each one has its own personality that comes alive upon creation. I use ‘real life models’ for a lot of my trees and there is certainly no lack of inspiration.

Lately, I’m back at it! Upon starting a new Society6 shop, I decided that I wanted to do something different than my photography. This is where my trees can make their grand entrance! I’m using it as a place to list my latest creations! I’m absolutely bursting with ideas for new tree illustrations!
Well, it’s back to the drawing board for me! Literally! Stay tuned for more happenings around the studio! ♥
