I am a tree hugger, a devout tree lover. My hope is to have my corpse planted beneath a sapling and become a part of that tree and the life it provides; can’t think of a better path to immortality. Of course trees figure in our lives in myriad ways not least in the intimate exchange of gases that keep us alive- with every breath we become a little bit tree! Trees give us much more than we give them. As an artist I want to honor the tree and all that it brings to life- its beauty, majesty and mystery.
