Schneider writes “In times of turmoil we often turn to nature for solace and centering. Whether bringing light and focus to what we are losing or celebrating rebirth, from broad landscapes to close up or microscopic forms.
Artists throughout the ages have been drawn to the vast and varied world of botanicals. What moves you? Do you celebrate the essence of beauty or strive to heighten recognition of the perilous path of our environment? Are you inspired by a single bloom or a profusion of blossoms in a lush bouquet, enchanted gardens manicured or messy, plants endangered or invasive, carefully cultivated or sown by nature, bursting forth or shriveling on a vine?”
