Trees

I love trees. I always thought it was because my name, Silvia, means "of the forest" Or maybe my name is what inspired me to appreciate these beautiful plants. And trees in turn have inspired my artwork over the years.

A drawing of me, surrounded by the people trees of Pooktre.

"Tree Harp"SalixTree, the internet name I have given to myself. She is a willow dryad, born in an online game "Ultima Online" And the name has stuck with me ever since.

A stitching of me in the garden, with a willow tree behind me.

Elfleda, the Hawthorn wish faerie. Yellow ribbon to wish for happiness... not really needed for myself, as I am perfectly happy ;)

a possible quilted pattern for a dress made of recycled clothing, a "Save the Trees" theme

"Taurus Cottage" , a drawing given to my Dad (a Taurus), now owned by my son and his ladyfriend.

Elfleda and Kiwi, characters from the book I'm currently working on, strolling through the willows by the stream.

"Pixie Tree" This is the home of the pixies in the forest of Yew, Ultima Online. I was the guild-master of the Pixie Guild for many years.

A forest of people trees. Again, inspired by the Pooktre people.

"Moon Tree"

"Bird Tree" inspired by the tree out my studio window, whose branches are sometimes covered with starlings, singing their hearts out.

A map of secret pixie places in my back garden as drawn by the resident faeries.

Taranis, the Oak Spirit, is resting in his tree during the winter.

Myself at a younger age, representing a tree spirit.
