About The Work
Netsuke - Sheltered within a tulip bud about to bloom is a tiny, secret gardener.

Inspiration comes from the natural world around her rural home. An intimate look at creatures and plants in their environment yields themes with elements of serenity or surprise. Her work points out little things in nature that most of us tend to disregard during our busy lives, and might present a small story which arouses quiet memories in the mind of the viewer.
