The New Sacred Lives of Trees - Paintings
‘The Sacred Lives of Trees’ is the collection of paintings created in 2016 to coincide with my rebrand launch during that same year.
I am an artist who is committed to putting nature and simplicity centre stage along my path to authenticity.
Through my use of tree’s in my artwork I am drawing on an important life metaphor for wellness and healing. In life we encounter storms, some which cause much twisting, deprivation and damage yet given time and more favourable circumstances we come right again.
Just like trees in nature this return to a state of elegance and grace takes time. We do not expect the natural world to be suddenly in a perfect state after a shock to its system or a longer period of disarray and similarly with ourselves it takes time to heal and grow.
During my exhibition of The Sacred Lives of Trees I gave my viewers the opportunity to express how they felt about trees. I heard people speaking for the first time about their own personal love of trees, the healing effects of their walks in woods and expressions of gratitude and joy.
I feel I am achieving my artistic goal through my decision to go-it-alone, as regards being a self-funded artist, because the results are now visible. I am now the artist on social media who receives articles from her audience with regards to the wellness effects of trees, along with beautiful photos of peoples favourite trees.
This conversation was surely in existence long before me and certainly existed in the minds and hearts of many people around our planet. Through my exhibition of The Sacred Lives of Trees, I feel the volume has been raised on these thoughts and conversations.
I now hear the voices of others echoing my sentiments and appreciation of nature and trees.
My sense of purpose is growing as tall as trees.
It is no wonder that I feel compelled to add to my sacred tree art collection this year.
I have been creating a set of smaller tree paintings (in acrylic) on board 20 x 25cm, with a lower price point to suit more pockets of those who want to make a home for The Sacred Lives of Trees.
These paintings will remain unframed so that they are suitable for delivery by postal system.
