I, like so many painters that have come before me, am enamored with the enchanting and delicate nature of flowers. They seem to be here for our pure enjoyment and delight. When I paint florals I bring that sense of enchantment with my subject to the canvas. I love the whimsical and varied nature of plant life and research specimens from around the world to file in my visual library. My purpose is not to illustrate the anatomy of a flower, but to recreate the feeling of wonder one experiences while appreciating them.
