FLORA

Flowers have played an important role for mankind throughout the ages.  Their beauty has the ability to lift  a mood, their fragrance can be enticing and the flower, foliage or roots provide medicines and food.  It's not surprising that throughout history many flowers have taken on a symbolic meaning and as a result, a language all their own - the origin of "say it with flowers".

Flowers make me happy - brightening the field, pond, roadside or woods, gracing a table or mantle, bringing beauty and color to a celebration or simply decorating my yard.  I'm drawn to their endless variety of color and form and take great pleasure in exploring their nuances "up close".   They're a subject I know I'll always return to in my work.
