The goal of this project was to show the remains of this dead flower still tell the stories of its blossom history like in the wrinkles of a senior I can read the active and exciting past.

Initially, I dedicated this blog to my travel photography, however as time was passing by I realized that all my interests in life are connected, interchangeable and overlapping. My major in school was Textile Design for a reason: I always was hunting for colors and textures, for new patterns and unique folk designs. I think these interests got projected onto my photography. Photography gave me the opportunity to capture and later on analyze much wider variety of designs and form representations. I found a lot of inspiration in the designs I collected around the word and I try to implement them in my original artwork. I’ll be happy if some of you will find the connections or make your own.
Here is my album “Burst and Bloom Flowers”:
I used a few photos as parts of a whole work: the background is the saturated picture of the reflected stained glass window, the old Victorian building silhouette is filled with my original corn pattern. I few birds flew into the design from a photo shot I made once in a park. I mixed and edited everything in Photoshop. I called it “Visiting”.
