The “Lineage” series reflects a longtime fascination with the physical form of trees and their symbolic associations. Trees can evoke the human figure, our ancestral lines, and serve as fuel to warm us – just to name a few connotations. This recent body of work is painted primarily in watercolor and then layered with text and other collage elements, referencing layers of meaning and emotion. Like the figurative work on this site, these new works address experiences that are personal and yet universal, such as identity, relationship, loss, and healing.
