Late Bloomer has been a breath of fresh air for me in my studio for the past year. I am excited to share this work with you, as it brought me great joy in making the paintings. This series all started with a friend and a beer, as most things do. it just so happens that this friend created this beer. As a patron of the arts, collaboration was inevitable, and Fleurs, was the beer that inspired these works. 


Late Bloomer is an exploration of play with composition and color. The arrangement of sunflowers have been deconstructed and the environment manipulated to redefine the space and subject matter. These variations of the same arrangement allowed for a wide array of color to be used in experimental ways.
