FINE ART OF FLOWERS
I have always been fascinated with light, color, flowers and beautiful paper. I love handling the natural materials. I've focused on other subjects, but have always come back to the flowers...because I need Beauty in my world.
The flower or leaf’s interior space is revealed as light shines through in the photographic process. The more translucent the plant or flower, the better the backlighting illumination, so I look for that when I choose my “models”.
I use words like "dance" or "float" in the titles to illustrate what I see as the compositions evolve, and to portray the emotions I put into the work.
My art is dedicated to the memory of my mother, Ruth Green Hollingsworth and my company, Green Ink, is named after her. She had confidence in me when I doubted myself the most.
