“My artworks for the exhibition “Summer Loving”
are inspired by generous New Zealand summertime.
In particular, I love wildflowers that surround us;
they are so delicate and gentle.
Picking up small bouquets of various field flowers and plants,
I enjoyed painting them.
It seems I dream together with nature.”
