The flowers collection started with my dad's funeral about ten years ago. I saw the beautiful flowers that peope had sent and thought what a shame it was that all these magnificent flowers would be gone in a just a little while. So I started painting them.
I love that flowers are so extroverted and colourful. Without any apology, God has shown us what he is like. I am breathless when I look at a flower and see the graduation from one colour to another. I look at the unbelievable shapes and the delicateness; I look at the array of colours and the blossoms in the flowering trees. The beauty is endless. I see the hand of God in designing and putting together all those colours and I just imagine if I could capture the impression that brings to someone in a painting, then I have done my job.
