The Tree series are images made up tracings from black and white photographs of trees taken from vintage books and magazines. Between the graininess of the image, the picture coming through from the other side and the low levels of the light box, the image being traced was not always clear. The tracings became an exercise in trust and patience, working on one small part at any time without much of a sense of how the final image would look in the end. What emerged was a series of images which have a natural organic rhythm, resembling vast river systems seen from the air, or parts of a nervous system seen through a microscope.
