What does one think of when they read or see the word flower? There are a multitude of answers to that question and as I pondered the answer for myself, I turned to the dictionary for definitions of the word “flower”; as you can imagine there are many, many images and descriptions. But the one that most aptly describes what I do is as follows: “To embellish with flowers; to adorn with imitated flowers; as, flowered silk”. (paraphrased)
As you can see by the photos of some of the creations I have made they are indeed adorned and embellished with “flowered silk” and other organic materials; I love colour and different textures. So when starting a project it may start as one thought but when it is finished it usually has taken on a life of its own. Sometimes I am amazed at how the end product is so very different than the original thought. For me, that is the beauty of being able to take my creative thoughts and have them become a collection of colour.
