Since childhood I have loved trees - for their beauty, their mystery, their persistence and their changing with the seasons.  I have buried my face in their soft fragrant blossoms, gathered their leaves and their fruit, climbed them and sheltered under them.  At each of our four homes over the years we have built a tree house for the children (and for us) - for reading and playing and for “being.”

Finding myself sick and homebound for some of January, I created collage trees to add to my “collection.”  In the future maybe some of these will inhabit children’s books.
