“Flora and Fauna” Solo Show Sep 16-22

“Flora and Fauna” Solo Show Sep 16-22

The symbolism of flowers may speak of constancy, unrequited love, and the ephemeral nature of beauty itself.

I believe companion animals reflect the inner desires, jealousies, kindnesses and hurts of their human guardians.
