the 'treevolution' brooch series

four seasons 'treevolution' brooches
These mixed media brooches sum up my conflicted feelings about making a new life as an immigrant in Canada, while being so far away from the land of my birth, family and friends.
The roots of the homesickness (heimweh) tree grow around a chunk of Scottish sea glass from my childhood beach.
The “i shall live here” tree has its root stock embedded around
Sunshine Coast sea glass and tiny copper maple leaves flourish on the branches.
