The Redwood Forest has survived on California's North Coast for thousands of years. Redwood trees can easily live to be many hundreds, or even one or two thousand years old, if not interfered with by loggers or natural disaster. Redwoods are magnificent trees, and Kathy is lucky enough to live among them, in their very shadows. On this page, the images range from the tiny to the immense, from a miniscule redwood seed to the huge forest giants themselves. Some flowers can survive at the feet of these behemoths, including the foxglove and trillium that Kathy has depicted here. Kathy Lewis got the inspiration to attempt the daunting task of capturing these titans of the forest on canvas from the works of Canadian artist Emily Carr, and her paintings of the fir forests of Canada.
