Business took Kim Osgood to Southeast Asia, where spirituality captured her. Climbing brought Osgood to the peaks of many mountains, during which she encountered her fair share of trees. And vacations in Zihuatanejo, Mexico, provided plenty of relaxation time, allowing her to create great art.

So, for her latest art project, Osgood incorporated all influences to create "Tree Lessons," an exhibit of nurse stumps as sacred trees, now showing at Russo Lee Gallery in Northwest Portland.
