The inspiration for this collection started with the idea of how flowers connect us. There are so many ways florals remind us of precious moments in our lives. Flowers commemorate first dates, anniversaries, sympathy, friendship, compassion and thoughtfulness while preciously bookmarking our experiences. We celebrate love and kindness by giving them; we press flowers into pages of books to remember them; we tend gardens to nurture them and we walk within farmers markets in search of them. Flowers allow us a gentle and beautiful way to express ourselves. While painting this series, I wanted to share my joy of bright, beautiful flowers with you. I hope these colorful, fine fabrics inspire you to make something new and special.
