After learning about Banyan trees I found the unique life cycle and growth pattern represented many similarities of how women interact in so many aspects of life; nurturing, protecting and enabling those around us to grow and develop.From a distance, the tree appears solitary and naturally flawless but a closer view reveals the intricacies and characterof the bark. Knotted, niched and twisted yet beautiful it reveals the fortitude to withstand harsh elements and seasons. Using heavy texture to create depth and layers of color, I hope to create a visual juxtaposition of peacefulness and metamorphic imagery.
