Fleur- de- lis. 

Flower of light.

A portfolio of 12 to 20 paintings were created each June.

 Each work measures: 23″H x 15″W

The IRIS series is in private collections nationwide.

The originals shown was translated into an exquisite fine art print and is available for sale.

The shape resonates/overlaps with multiple images: triangle; vulva/phallic; pine tree; dragonfly; chandelier; human figure with outstretched arms-opening and surrendering to the heavens;hands in prayer;etc.

The evanescent and perennial evanescence of the iris bloom: waiting and awaiting, beholding, and accepting the forever imprint/gift of natural rapture.

The IRIS series began in 2002 as crayon drawings: RAPTURES.

I began to use the actual pulp of the bloom after a bloom spilled its color on a drawing. I hold the fragile bloom in my hand and carefully listen and draw out its life once again.

Heraldry of evanescent and astonishing beauty.

The IRIS series is an ongoing exploration/discovery/discipline every early June.

Reverence and passion.
