I grew up in a big house with a big backyard, and a huge amount of botanical choice in my garden. I also grew up with a Mum who could never get enough photos of flowers! They say that we all become like our parents if we don’t actively try and avoid it…and I have become a consistent flower photographer!
I love the colors, the contours, the interplay of light and dark and shadows. I love them in gardens, on windowsills, at weddings. I love them individually and in arrangements. I especially love them close up. They are also a global phenomenon… 😉
So everywhere I travel, every time I buy flowers at home, every time I attend a wedding – I find inspiration in the artistry of the flowers, their petals, their shadows. You will find that you can also draw or paint from their beauty…it’s one of my favorite sources of inspiration!
