In this photograph my drawings are shown on display in the Glyndor House Gallery at Wave Hill, a public garden and cultural center in the Bronx.

The Wave Hill Flower Diary drawings are made with stains of flowers from the Conservatory at Wave Hill, which I visited every day of my residency there in the winter of 2013. I rubbed the flower petals onto paper, creating traces of their ephemeral color and recorded the plant names. What started out as note taking process became a set of drawings that memorialize the daily pleasure of gathering the fallen blooms and mark the passage of my time at Wave Hill.
