One of three trees I was commissioned to make for a building material showroom. The trees were constructed on site. The trees were constructed over 3 1' X 1' X 15' wood ceiling support beams. Each tree took approx. 1 month to complete. Materials used; foam installation board, glue, diamond wire mesh sheets, wire, burlap, Dryvit, acrylic paint, artificial silk leaves. This is the second Oak tree constructed for this project.

About Me:
I am a traditional artist. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. My mom told me that when I was old enough to hold onto a crayon or piece of chalk, I was drawing. My high school years were crammed with as many art classes I could squeeze in with the general stuff. Took some college courses focusing on fine art, drawing, sculpture but I hold no degree, just alot of experience. I am also a musician ( not professionally), trained on keyboards, woodwinds, drums, percussion. The native flute is one of my favorite instruments to play. I like the sound that it produces. My stereo/CD player is usually on when I am at home. Music is something that I enjoy as much as drawing. When music is on the stereo it is played loud... I really like to hear the intricate layers of the music,...
