My Life in Trees

Blog

Solo exhibition at the Birmingham and Midland Institute. 1-26 November 2021

Like many, the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown was a time of isolation and introspection. I took the opportunity to reflect on some of the most significant trees throughout my life. Some are memorable simply for their presence, while some mark specific moments or movements. As one who has relocated and started over many times, I find solace in the stillness of trees. The following 18 watercolour paintings are a search for roots amid rootlessness.  See link below for a preview of the book, ‘My Life in Trees’.
