Portrait of My Mother as a Bouquet 


As the caretaker and eldest daughter of a mother with Parkinson’s disease, this painting is an exploration of her battle with the disease from my perspective. Her birthday is on the first day of Spring — a time of bright colors and rebirth. This painting was my way of expressing beauty, stillness, imbalance, and dyskinesia.
