Ever since I can remember I’ve always been fascinated with trees. How they feed, communicate and the patterns of growth. How they mimic the rhythm of their neighbors and their shape is often evidence of the struggles they faced during their lifetime. I’ve learned to welcome these thoughts and learn more about these amazing creations as it does translate into the visual arts. The more intimately acquainted you are with your subject, the more you’re going to take care in representing it with your own phenomonology and the hope is that on some deeper level thats communicated to the observer. In summary that’s what art is to me, it’s to create a channel of communication that speaks to the heart in its own native language.
