The core theme of Willow Tree is the expression of humanity, interesting and relevant in people's lives while offering a symbol or marking a memory. Since introducing Willow Tree® in 1999, she has conceived, sculpted and carved the original of each figure in her Kansas City art studio. Her artistic process is rather intuitive; she "sketches" in clay as she forms and carves each piece. This one-of-a-kind approach to product creation makes her pieces truly individual… her hand, and her unique perspective, is evident in each sculpture.

Starry Night Nativity
...and heaven and nature sing
"Starry Night Nativity challenged me to tell a story and engage the viewer in a small space. All the figures fit into an 8" box that opens up as a triptych and reveals a starry night encircling an intimate scene. My use of deep gradated blues and sparkly gold is a jewel-like reference to historical objects of art... I embellished the surfaces with gold dots —symbolizing light, or energy, hope inner strength...Gold connotes preciousness and enduring value, and I wanted this to be a special piece, that would be kept for a long time, or possibly handed down within families.
"I designed this piece to be versatile enough to display year-round, on a table or a wall; open or closed. The outside doors reflect nature and the cycles of life—regeneration, renewal, rebirth. These themes influence everything I make."
