Artist's Statement

In this painting, I utilize mixed media and the wax and dye resist process known as batik or rozome to channel my energies into exploring my subject matter and the stories behind the imagery. I love seeing this beautiful pink flower radiating joy while blooming in the marshes of Southwest Florida. The raku-like effects of the batik process adds life to my subject matter.
