Giving voice to the fact that trees nuture our wellbeing, this is the reason I created the painting collection: ‘The Sacred Lives of Trees’
A walk in the forest not only stretches our muscles or gives us an excuse to be in fresh air, we may also get a wonderful sense of connection to the earth which trees are strongly rooted to. Many people refer to this as the grounding effect of trees.
You might need to ground yourself if you have been affected by the following:
There are lots of circumstances in life that can leave us feeling disconnected from ourselves but trees provide us with a way of restoring that connection. Connecting with Nature helps to restore connection with self.
"Trees are an important contributor to our well-being, this factor is much deeper than some may realise."Caroline Cunningham, Artist
More people are recognising the grounding effects of trees as a very real benefit for well-being. Tree analogies are used in meditation for this very reason. We can imagine ourselves having roots just like trees, anchoring ourselves strongly to the earth. By influencing our thoughts and feelings in this way, we can change our body’s chemistry over time and raise our energy to allow sensations of being anchored and centred. By developing this practice we can become more clear in our thinking and more able to deal with the surprise ‘hits’ life throws in our path.
The response I got from launching ‘The Sacred Lives of Trees’ tour was tremendous. My on-line community sensed the importance of my quiet message about the trees, through my use of vivid colours and the intimate settings of trees.
From the comments I received during my art exhibition it was clear that the message resonated with many people. In my notebook and on-line they expressed their gratitude for trees and the comfort that they had received as a result of their presence.

Add the grace and healing energy of trees to your home or work space through my colourful tree paintings. I have a selection of sizes and styles to choose from and I am on stand-by to assist you with your purchasing queries. Take a look in my gallery.
Through my art and writing I share stories and inspiration for transformation, healing and dreams turning to reality. When you visit my gallery you glimpse my journey, my authentic path. It took a ‘Break True’ moment to point me towards developing my artistic talents. It’s never too late to make a new start. I’ve achieved a lot in a relatively short time. My work has been presented in New York as part of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, has been displayed on county Post Office and has been show-cased on National TV. Read more about my art journey here.
