I was recently asked why leaves? the reason I choose fallen leaves is because they often symbolize death in literature and mythology and the tree is often used as the symbol of family or life. Each leaf I create is unique to represent the unique life lost. Thanks for the great question, please continue to ask questions and share your thoughts on this issue and the project.

I went for a walk tonight and listened as the wind rustled the leaves and watched as the trees swayed gently. It was nice to be able to just appreciate the beautiful nature of a tree and not think about it as a source for leaves for my project.
