It took me awhile. I knew I was obsessed with vertical linework in my art, but I never really understood the intuitive bent on a deeper level, until recently.

I have always admired trees, and I have always been moved by them, by their strong, silent presence, by their resilience, and yes, by their connective properties. Now I understand my love of trees on an even deeper level...
