Dead flowers. The eyes of the flower. The twig. The stigma, anthers, petals, branches. It’s all falling apart. Dead flowers. I see you looking the same as the other flowers. I wish the dead flowers came alive to attract attention, like the live flowers attracting the bees and the butterflies, but I want more. I want to attract everything, everyone, everywhere. Greedy? Heh.

The dead flowers series started as a whimsical series for me to express my ideas of flowers in an abstract motif. It soon escalated slowly into my own stylistic way of drawing and as I explored further it became my signature. I work digitally over a motif. This dead flowers series started off as black ink drawings and it shall continue as black ink drawings. Hopefully the motifs would soon find a place and a home either as fabric or as artworks on a wall.
