Spring into Summer!

“Flowers represent happiness, their beauty energizes and comforts me.”

After a cold, lingering winter – it’s Spring at last! I was born in May, a time of rebirth, when flowers come back to life and brighten our days with their colours and fragrances.

This exhibit is an expression of my inward flower garden, a world where everything is possible, where colours are extra bright and where I am constantly exploring and simplifying designs to reveal the essence of flowers.
