windswept

 

I am not inspired by the beauty of nature. It is beautiful, no one would dispute it, but I am not inspired to try to recreate it simply because it is beautiful.

 

It is the spirit that can be found in nature and how it reflects qualities and weaknesses of our own spirits that inspires me.

 

Resilience in nature fascinates me most, how the urban crows and the windswept trees have managed to adapt and survive in harsh environments.

 

 

These trees are designed to be reminders and tributes. We have all weathered storms, the world we live in may be harsh and it does shapes us but we too have a resilience, the storms we have weathered make us stronger These are a tribute to the resilient spirits within.
