Artist's Statement

I'm honored to participate in Flor500. Purely by accident I chose the Pine Hyacinth, a flower endemic to Florida. While difficult to locate, the Clematis baldwinii is one of the first plants to emerge after a prescribed burn in Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes it helps to reinvent the landscape. I find a happy parallel between this flower and my new life here in The Sunshine State.
