“Inspired by nature, I became interested in the architectural detail of flowers, their vibrant color and their moment in time. In my oil paintings, the petals and leaves play within the confines of the painting’s edges, allowing the viewer a peek into the serenity of the garden. These over-scaled floral portraits draw the viewer into the detail of each flower’s anatomy. Chiaroscuro is juxtaposed against the transparency of the flower, aglow with life. In my new collection of paintings, the flowers emerge as self-aware, persuading the viewer to take part in their role in time and in nature. They stand confidently, denying their own vulnerability. These flowers own a delicate strength… This oversized perspective of flowers signifies more than a representation of the literal and calls our attention to their importance within nature’s grand scheme.”
