Tansy Lee Moir is an artist with a passion for trees.

Her work is inspired by the forms and history old trees and the influence that humans, animals and natural processes have in shaping them: in the way they provide a solid representation of time.

Her dialogue with trees takes the form of drawing and her sensuous charcoals and lively line drawings capture the movement and complexity of trees as they respond to their environment.

"Through an intense process of looking, using the medium of drawing, my dialogue with trees asks not just what they look like, but also what looking at trees can tell us about ourselves.”

She works predominantly in charcoal and pastel in her Edinburgh studio and in woodland locations around Scotland and her native Peak District.
