Artist's Statement

The wooded area next to my childhood home in Pensacola was filled with wildflowers of all types. The first time I saw the Wild Columbine it reminded me of all the hours I spent in my native habitat of North West Florida observing backlit flowers and pondering the relationship of light and its effect on plants and the woodland creatures. As a result, I created "Fairy Lantern”.
