UKRAINE FLOWER SERIES | works on paper 

This series began on February 25th, five days after Putin began bombing Ukrainian civilians, museums, schools, pre-schools, a nuclear power plant in Kyiv & hospitals. Each piece is named after the city that was senselessly bombed. The bravery and fierceness of the Ukrainian people reminded me of when my British mother shared personal stories of WWII. To hear these stories and then read how England fought against the Nazis despite insane odds is one thing. To watch it actually happen all over again is…well, there are no words. I can only make these flowers as a testament of the endless battle between good and evil. These are Peace flowers…some armed with thorns like the Ukrainian people struggling to preserve their people, their country, their legacy. I’ll be finishing up more as the war continues.
