Flowers Outside My Back Window

Throughout history flowers, herbs and other plants have been used as medicines, food, perfume, decoration, adornment and as signs of love and respect. Bees, butterflies and other insects have used pollen, for their own survival and propagation of the plants they visit. The shear beauty and fragrant of flowers have kept mankind mesmerized for centuries.

Out of my great passion for nature and my love of gardening, I created a series of very stylized pastel and pastel-pencil drawings of flowers. Many of these images where inspired by the blossoms in my own gardens. At a recent exhibition of this work, I was awarded first place in Drawings and Paintings.
