A Stately Garden Collage Collection

I like to take on challenges. I was given the idea of creating a collage for every official state flower. I've worked on a flower-based series before and enjoyed the experience. Flowers are something most everyone enjoys and they look great in any room. I like taking an object we all recognize from our gardens and adding my artistic flair with collage. The different textures, colors, and physical depths created by the paper I use make a picture of a flower a whole new experience. I felt the entire completed series would make a statement when hanging on the wall. It is a statement of beauty with a little history lesson thrown in. Each collage depicts the state's roads, towns, and flower all on one surface. They even reference the state flag. Seeing them together is like a road trip across our country—all while sitting at home.
