Three tales that catalyze a connection between specific types of trees and their geographic/emotional location, effects and potential for energetic exchanges. A candid memoir recounted through the lens of a visual artist and made tangible by several full color references to the narrator's sculpture and paintings.
"With each tale, Victoria gently coaxes us into-- and walks us along--the threads of her own transitions through love and loss. It's as if we, her readers, are present as each breath she takes is exchanged with the natural environment around her. The stories reveal glimpses at the intersection of her work, her artistic process and her place among the bays and redwoods where she has found solace, tamed her demons and built a family for herself. She invites us in with care, as she touches on those mysterious and lovely growing pains that are the foundations of a creative, meaningful and fully lived life." - Dani Burlison, author of Dendrophilia and other Social Taboos.
Victoria Wagner lives and teaches at an art/design college in Northern California. Her paintings, drawings and sculptural work have been included in exhibitions throughout the United States. Boughs of Our Form is her first published book of writings.
