I have always gazed at the trees and they brought me up to trees work has developed from a personal and intellectual interest in Trees.I am also interested in the metaphorical possibilities of trees.they are full of energy and movement ,they are upright as even the winter can,t wipe them away.My trees work rooted in me and i rooted on the earth.The Woman and Tree is quite rich and used in many world culture.They often revolve around what I describe an interaction between culture,peace,memory,nature and tradition in contemporary world.
