If you take your children or grandchildren to the Kohl Children’s Museum, on Main Street you’ll get a glimpse of the Treewhispers project and multiple contributions. Grateful for the outreach and opportunities they’ve provided.

I LOVED doing my “Exploring Calligraphic Lines Thru the Trees” Workshop. 

I enjoyed giving them a new project each week of different tree styles & techniques. They all picked their own wording to go with each design.


Students have sent fabulous feedback and are still posting – we have a FB group for them. So happy that it went well!! I would love to do it again for other groups in the future.  


I truly believe, we were all connected because of the subject – everyone had such a beautiful feeling for the trees and the energy they all brought to the class. I was blown away and truly amazed.

Hi Pamela,

I will be mailing my Treewhispers submission tomorrow, but I will email you the image here. My story is simple, reflected in the quote by Shakespeare which I wrote on the handmade paper. (Kitchen sink variety.) I’m so glad you asked Reggie to send the request out to his former students. This is the first calligraphy I’ve done for many years and because of this experience have decided to “go back to my roots” and write again.

My tree story.
Living on the central Oregon Coast in the Pacific Northwest affords great opportunity for walking in the woods among huge old growth trees. I marvel at their beauty and feel a presence even from the giant stumps left over from logging a century ago. I walk with my dog several times a week on secluded forest trails behind my house. It’s quiet in the solitude save for the voices of the trees who seem to speak volumes.

Best,
Christie Burns
