Much of my recent work features trees and is increasingly focused on "portraits" of mature native trees encountered in the local countryside. I am equally fascinated by decoding visual evidence of a tree's past and by the human phenomenon of pareidolia, causing us to see fantastic creatures in the convoluted shapes of bark and roots.
