"My search for a more direct creative path also brought me back to my own primal memory; the exhilaration at age seven of opening a fresh box of 16 crayons. Two rows of color, the warm yellow one catching my eye first- each color playing one off the other.
Like the crayons, each bloom is jostling with its neighboring color seeking its most flattering
compliment. These bloom images embrace the perception that truth is found in the observation
of nature; that life is evanescent and that simplicity is at its core." - Amelia Currier
