Flowers are known for their therapeutic effect on people. It’s a combination of their colours, scent and a variety of shapes that never fails to bring a smile on my face.
Flowers naturally became a dear subject in my images. During the colder season there would be no presence of them both in my work and in nature. This is how Winter Flowers came to be in a particular winter where we all longed for a little more comfort than usual.
On my walks, I would direct my attention towards dried flowers and grass, spoiled branches covered in an ornamental snow and even towards more figurative flowers. They brought solace and beauty to my days.
