Claffy's first painting was completed in 2017 following a long career in commercial banking. Since then, her creative ideas are have increased exponentially and her future in art is as limitless as the patterns in trees. The branch and leaf patterns in trees provide the beginning "grid" for most every original piece. In her phone, you'll find countless photographs of trees, about 35,000.
"All those photos give me the raw patterns for countless paintings. Truthfully however, all I've ever needed is just one tree. Because when the light changes - there's new patterns. When the wind blows - new patterns. When the seasons change - new patterns. If I turn upside down - all NEW PATTERNS. There is infinite potential inside every second. It's like a code generator for pass codes - infinite combinations." Becky Claffy
