I am constantly fascinated and inspired by the shapes of trees, the strength of the roots, the trunk and the patterns of the bark and by the way trees grow towards the light, create shadows, and sway in the wind. They make me think of the natural cycles of birth, life and death.
When I look at trees, I feel a sense of peace and tranquility, but at the same time a certain anxiety. This is like the process that I go through when I am creating a new piece. I am never entirely clear about either the nature of the journey or the destination. But I am content to take my time in reaching it.
