This year I have the honor of creating art about the amazing species that are the Redwood trees! These remarkable beings, found only in select corners of our world, have captured my artistic imagination. Nestled in the Bay Area, the Coastal Redwoods stand tall, an embodiment of awe. Rising to heights exceeding 300 feet, they reign as the tallest arboreal giants on our planet.They can grow to well over 300 feet tall. 

One inspiring aspect of the redwood trees is that they have no taproots. Instead, they embrace a harmonious dance of support, interlacing their roots in a web of interconnectedness. Vertically, their roots stretch a modest 10 to 13 feet, but horizontally they sprawl for 60 to 80 feet, weaving an intricate tapestry of stability and unity. 

Many intricate ecosystems live in a single Redwood tree. A single tree itself can be habitat for an incredible number of species. When redwoods shed their foliage, much of it accumulates in the branches and decomposes to become soil where other species of plant seeds and fungi spores can sprout. 

I am meticulously creating some grand-scale works that pay homage to the Redwoods' power. Soon you will see the finished creations. But for now, here is a glimpse into the inspiration behind my art.
