I've always loved flowers. When I became a student of *Art* I found the works of Georgia O'Keefe captivating, long before it was a popular idea to do so. As a photographer, I love to get up close and very personal with my floral images, trying to expose the natural beauty, deep in the heart of each flower. I think of them as people, each with something unique to offer the world. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we are constantly being told, but I hope to show that which my eye perceives.
