After the death of my mother in 2016, I went into a very reflective place and my artwork took a more internal turn. I submerged into the sensual and fragile creative medium of watercolor.With each new series of works in this pigment based traditional art form, it exercised my mind and soul from a state of mourning to a place of healing while finding a new language in which to create. This new series of watercolors I spared the subject matter down to this body of floral still lifes that I have entitled “Anthesis”, named for the period or act of expansion in flowers which also echoes the process of my own creative discovery in watercolor.
