The Flower Collection

The Flower Collection brings out the energies and connections experienced with flowers, the unspeakable and preverbal that we share when we are in contact with nature's unruly beauty.

My flowers are not the result of observational drawing or traditional nature paintings; they are visual expressions of the experiential movement and vitality that flowers give us. Ultimately, these paintings respond to my trust in the human capacity to be impacted by subtlety and notice beyond what we can see.

This collection of paintings resulted from two family artist residencies in the last six months and reflects a new way of working with my children: We activated the paintings together using casein paint. Then, I worked by myself using oil paint to reveal the movements and marks that stood out to me.

I exhibited these paintings at the Soil Factory in February 2024. You can read the text that accompanied the exhibition here
