"Full Bloom" is an exploration into floral painting, a tradition that has been practiced by female artists and hobbyists for generations. This series has allowed me to feel connected to a lineage of female artists that have worked for centuries with floral subject matter. It stands as my contemporary take on a conventional topic. It has encouraged me to embrace a more saturated color palette and has led me to find new ways to engage an audience. The paintings come at a time in my practice when I am eager to see what the future holds. I see "Full Bloom" as a celebration of renewal and regrowth.
