I have a profound love for my hands because they are the tools that empower me every single day. With them, I type on my computer, create delicious meals, bring my artistic visions to life, and nurture life itself through my beloved garden.
Recently, my lovely mother suffered a wrist injury as she got lost in the beauty of her blooming roses. As I supported her through her healing, it opened my eyes to the incredible capabilities of our hands and how much we rely on them.
In this artwork, I've captured a hand reaching out towards a vibrant flower in my garden, gracefully plucking it to be displayed in a charming vase, enhancing the beauty of my home. I love picking the flowers that I have helped bring to life. This work honors the intimate connection between nature and ourselves, reminding us to cherish and honor the wonders that surround us.
