Items of meaning to a family can hide in the branches- e.g. your daughter's special doll can be replicated closely; a dad's cherished road bike can lean against the trunk; or even a son could be proudly wearing his favourite footy team's kit …"The world is your oyster", as they say..!
Wheelchair-users can also be symbolised, as well as skin-colour being adaptable, and pets incorporated (as far as possible!) so that everyone one can be included in The You Tree.
I believe this is what makes these pieces of art so special ... and I hope you'll agree.
Hi, I'm Jo Greenwood,

After the birth of my daughter, I returned to work gradually, to my preferred interests. Firstly I was a sales rep for a children's books publisher, and set up a handmade greetings card home business...
