The Floral Works
My mother is a gardener, but I myself have a brown thumb.Though I do not have a talent for growing plants, I have always been drawn to them. I love their colors, shapes, their changing forms from bud to blossom, and the fact that most of them are temporary forms, waning and waxing with the seasons. Like the Rococo and Baroque artists of Meissen and Sevres, I see flowers as symbols of life and beauty. The are also a symbol of my mother. She not only made her garden grow, but nurtured me to grow into the beautiful, intelligent, and compassionate woman I am today. I may not be able to grow flowers, like my mother, but this is my way of making them; my own green thumb, the way I make the world a more beautiful and better place.
