Flower Mendings at DragonFly

Amy at Dragonfly has been so supportive and encouraging of my work.  I was thrilled to be one of three featured artists in her winter showcase and am excited to show new work with her this Spring and Summer.  At the moment one of my flower mending shadowboxes is on display with others to come.  The flower mendings explore the history of flower preservation, humanities fascination with botanicals and examine how we might preserve the beauty and spirit of flowers as we destroy them and the ideal climates in which to grow them.  Dried and pressed flowers are placed into conversation with embroidery mending stitches asking if we might be able to repair that which we have plucked from life with a time tested method of restoration.
