These enormous pencil drawings are not just pictures of trees. They are portraits of individuals. I don't know that there's much more I can say. I could perhaps wish that the images were a little larger to fully appreciate the scale and detail in these pieces. The scale is important to keep in mind. This first piece is a 12 and a half feet tall! She has taken the time to really look at and appreciate the beauty of trees and she is trying to make us do the same.
