How Does Your Garden Grow?

In this series of oil paintings on canvas the garden is the setting for its symbolism and origins in both art history and poetry. Each painting exemplifies my desire to both portray and celebrate women as the protagonist, and inspiration springs from a wide range of influential genres, from Byzantium to contemporary tattoo art.

Stylized female figures culminate from an innate naïve sensibility, and the titles are drawn from my childhood where a poem, saying and/or nursery rhyme help add an element of whimsy, while adding a note of lighthearted humor to serious subjects.
