ARTIST STATEMENT: Midsummer, one can get lost in acres of sunflowers in Portugal. The Portuguese word for sunflower is "girasol". When translated directly, gira means turn, spin, or follow, sol sun. This has become a personal mantra of mine, Turn to the sun. The sunflower becomes a motif of hope, strength and beauty. Playful reminders of nature's presence as they consume figures and urban landscapes. My work documents urban guerrilla gardening and promotes food justice.
