I respond viscerally to trees; the beauty, strength and power is restorative and sacred.  My backyard has undergone serious changes from storms and subsequent losses due to mandated clearing for power lines.  In an attempt to capture the shifting landscapes, I'm always experimenting with materials such as wood panels, silver mylar, metallic inks and wax.
