The Hugging Willow

The Hugging Willow

Original SOLD
Limited edition Giclee prints from £40

Often found by the water’s edge, the willow dances merrily in the wind with the leaves flickering like magical silver waves.It offers harmony and inspiration, encouraging playfulness; and provides a safe haven for meditation and creativity.

Great healing powers come from the bark and leaves which contain salicyclic acid to help physical ailments, while its energy can touch deep in our subconscious to mend deep hurt and heal emotions.

I am lucky enough to have wonderful willows right on my door step and often walk amongst their branches for than sense that nurturing. In this work, I’ve tried to capture a sense of that safe haven within its trailing branches, as if the tree is hugging you to comfort as your wounds heal, while nurturing your creativity.
