Starts with expectation from the client.
Your vision, how you want your tree to look, is it a memory of a real tree or a dream of a fantasy tree.
Realistic, Personal or Fantasy.
A realistic tree is a true representation of a tree from a forrest or photograph.
A personal tree is the idea that I can re create a tree that holds significant or sentimental value to you.
A fantasy tree is more of a playful creative tree, meant to create the look of "other" and "out of this world".
1. Fantasy tree with birth stone.
2. Realistic tree with personal object
3. Personal tree from a childhood memory
4. Fantasy tree with personal object
Still not sure what you want?
Once the information is acquired from the client I start with the tree shape and colour.
While the tree dries I build the rock face based on the shape and style of the tree.
After multiple layers of colour the two elements come together.
Build time: 5 to 6 days depending on the complexity of the request.

Sue (The Apple Orchard)
My childhood home in England backed onto an apple orchard. Some of the trees were old and gnarled with mossy branches and red apples. The ground beneath the trees was tufted grass and also mossy in places, with fallen apples surrounding the tree trunk. I thought it could include a bucket of apples next to the trunk - if that’s not too much
Thank you Suzie
