For a few years I collected flower petals, leaves and seeds to make images of fairies, babies, goddesses and little girls. The plant material came from my gardens in Minneapolis and later Portland, and from Kew. They are made with pencil, watercolor and pressed flower petals, and archival glue and papers.
