Memories in Bloom

Memories in Bloom is a collection of oil paintings portraying farm animals overlaid with flowers, representing both a eulogy and a celebration of life for the animals and the farm that shaped me into the artist I am today. Each painting tells a story of life and death, growth and decay, and the beauty that can be found in both. Inspired by the loss of my family's farm, this collection represents my experiences as the last generation in my family to steward land. Though I never owned my family’s farm, the land still occupies every corner of my mind and heart. These paintings are my way of creating a tangible recording of this experience.


Through this collection, I honor the traditions and values that have been passed down through my family for generations, and invite those who may be multiple generations removed from agriculture and farming to also reflect on their own cultural ties and relationships with animals, plants, and the land.
