Family Tree Portraits showcase your family in a unique, adventurous way. Trees grow in all environments and conditions and each is a unique individual. Tree rings from a felled tree show more than just age. They recall the drought or overabundance of water, forest fire, disease, scars and growth obtained through a full life. I’ve found people are similar. We all have beautiful, happy, hard and lonely experiences that shape us and make us unique. These portraits aim to portray a bit of that complexity and beauty. The horizontal stripes show the connections that exist in families; each person is connected, but also a separate individual.
