secret life of dying flowers

cotton, silk, wool, beads

hand and machine embroidered

varying sizes

2013 - 2015

Prompted by the 2013 Hand and Lock competition I started this series of personified florals. I treat each piece as a small snapshot of the fantastical lives of these personified flowers. In my mind, there’s a whole other world in which flowers come alive and live out mischievous antics. The separate pieces come together in a broken narrative that encourages the viewer to imagine their own conclusions.
