My love of flowers is constant and passionate. I have always had a profuse garden and I surround myself with flowers on a daily basis. They are as necessary as food to me. My favorite theme to paint, I aim to capture the whimsy, the glory and the romance they emit. I use my fingers to paint the petals, dancing them across the canvas, as if skipping through meadows of wildflowers. They are a never ending well of inspiration for me .
