I began as a watercolor artist in 1980 and continued through the years experimenting with various art forms until my love of flowers and my concern for the environment gave existence to Flower Sculptures in 1995. Flower Sculptures are a beautiful collection of some 40 species of wildflowers and garden flower pins, earrings and hair accessories hand-sculpted from 140 lb. watercolor paper and then carefully hand-painted using acrylic paint then coated with a water proof sealant. My goal for each piece is to capture a realistic rendering of the actual flower. I believe that in spite of serious environmental injury, the earth still “laughs in flowers”, and that flowers are here to remind us of the immense diversity and sustainability of earth. With Flower Sculptures being sold nationally, it is my hope that each piece can be a little part of spreading that powerful message.
