About the series // There is beauty in chaos, in not knowing. There is beauty in endings because they lead to new beginnings. In the dark, we see things clear and stark. There is beauty in this simplicity. It is my belief that hope lies in this beauty. It is my belief that through experiencing this beauty, we gain the energy to make it through this dark part of the transformation, a necessary although potentially quite a painful step in the constant cycle of growth and death. It is my belief that beauty is power and this series is my exploration of that magic in flora.

Her work is about change and transformation, about embracing the beauty in the smallest things, about magic and dreams. Through blur and moody, painterly light, she tries to evoke the feeling of belonging in-between worlds, of motion and evolution. She is inspired by nature and flowers specifically. There apparent fragility and delicacy, juxtaposed with endurance and strength is a dichotomy she is interested in exploring. There is so much power in that delicate balance.
