Trees represent to me strength, wisdom, transformation, and the forest a sacred sense of place.
I look for imagery in the natural environment around me. The Arnold Arboretum is within walking distance of my home, and I find inspiration there, recalling the woods of my childhood. The woods were my first intimate connection with nature. While walking there alone, I found solace and a sense of mystery/order, and I discovered an inner voice that has been a companion throughout my life. In my treescapes I seek to create a feeling that one could enter that place, and in it find what I had found in my childhood forest.
