In this most recent body of work I have set out to interpret the balanced but beautifully random patterns and colours of the floral still life. Through an evolving, graphically-based visual language I endeavour to convey the energy and wonder that strikes me when observing the botanical world. This practice has also led me to examine why we are collectively drawn to cultivate and share flora as a means to express love, comfort and support. These floral impressions carry stories and messages that lend significance to events in our daily lives. They speak volumes when words fail to express our thoughts and emotions. The still life is not static – as in all life, it is dynamic, adaptive and fleeting.
