"Pink Hellebore Flower" | New Video & Prints

This week, I'm sharing the next timelapse video and archival print from my latest "Homegrown 2021" spring collection of artworks.

This time, the spotlight is on the small, but mighty pink Hellebore flower! Some know it by its more common name, the "Lenten Rose". To me, this flower is the star of spring. For a perennial, it's blooms last for weeks on end. This flower is very special to me because my Granny grew them all around her shady back yard. A few years ago, before she passed away, she let me dig up a big, beautiful plant to transplant in my own garden. It now thrives in my front yard where I can see it everyday and be reminded of her every time I see it.

Check out how this piece was made from start to finish:

More About This Art Collection
"As the weather warmed and the bulbs and wildflowers bloomed, I would take my coffee and sketchbook outside and record their growth and special characteristics. Those sketches became the foundation for what these drawings would become. The lines and curves of the leaves reminded me of the art nouveau style, so that became an aesthetic that I leaned into and explored in these pieces. Delicate curves.. slightly whimsical.. my ode to the beauty of spring."
