Nobody sees a flower, really:
It is so small we haven't time, and to see takes time. Georgia O' Keefe
What has more beauty? What could be more delicate?
What can exist in so many places?
What could attract so much interest?
Whose fragrance can erase away your worries?
The answer, of course, is Mother Nature’s finest …. Flowers.

A Blooming Artist
My love of nature that I enjoyed when hiking and visiting many gardens as I traveled is the memory that inspires me to paint. I delight in bringing to life the voluptuous blooms of flowers with their eye popping vivid colors. Creating petals with their soft textures and curves begin to take shape as you watch life appear. These blooms are supported with interesting shapes and reflective leaves that make you want to touch. The many facets of the angles from the petals and leaves reflect the light differently during the day. This vision makes you want to smell the fragrance. Bringing flowers to life is what I am striving for. This memory from nature as a child has evolved to my passion of the flowers that I enjoy and why I had to put them on canvas. So enjoy what passion has produced.
My work has evolved from being introduced at an early age to nature with the visiting and planting of the gardens with flowers, fruits and vegetables. I and my siblings helped our mother and grandmother with the planting and enjoyed anticipating the results of playing in the dirt and what we would see, smell and eat.
