My Happy Tree Series is pure fun, I love painting them and they bring me a ton of pleasure. It goes back to when I was 8 was walking through a shopping mall with my Mum and I entered a competition to win a 9 year old Bonsai. Bizarrely I won it! I was too young and careless to take good care of it, so I decided to give it to a family friend that could. This particular tree has been featured in many of my paintings. It really does make me feel good to paint them, so please enjoy!
