Portfolio of selected works

Not much is known about Monsoon Tree. Tree is reclusive, and prefers not to participate in – what he calls – the absurdist dramas of modern life. Monsoon Tree cites chapel wall paintings as inspiration, such as the work of Giotto. Monsoon Tree lives and works in Tucson, Arizona, U.S.A. A self-proclaimed mystic, and student of the arcane and esoteric, M. Tree’s paintings (and other works) reflect a perception that there is “that which transpires behind that which appears.” The works, therefore, tend to the abstract and the fantastic. It is said that M. Tree often works in a treehouse.
