My art celebrates nature, in all it's simplicity, complexity and majesty. FUNGI & SPIRITS is an image from my 7-piece Tree Series. I embark on Tree Journeys. I take many photos of series-worthy specimens, compile them, go over them to deem if they really possess the qualities first noticed. After study, I translate them into the drawings for my Tree Series. I believe that great trees are Old Souls, who have many stories to tell: the circumstances of their birth emergence from the earth; the obstacles faced during their lifetimes; how they adapt, overcome & survive.
