All throughout my life I
have had a great love and appreciation for all of nature's wonders, whether
they are out in the wild, or displayed in a nearby botanical park, or at
home in my gardens. I am filled with fascination for the nearly
incomprehensible variety of life that comprises our natural environment.
Many of the images of
flowers that I have created come from plants that have been nurtured in my
gardens. When they have reached the peak of beauty, I create a
pleasing arrangement of them, then photograph or paint them as a means of
forever preserving their fragile beauty, and sharing it with others.
