“As an artist, you follow a disciplined and meticulous examination of a plant prior to drawing or painting; for you cannot sacrifice accurate botanical information for aesthetic reasons. You must cross the border between science and art, embracing the freedom of one without discarding the discipline of the other.
You must have a passion for flowers, love what you are drawing and painting, and know the flower in all the stages of development.
Hopefully with the composition, use of color, and skill in the handling of paint, you will give the viewer a painting that is admired for its fidelity to the subject, but also for its beauty.”
