The Prickly Pear Cactus series shows cacti in various stages of life. After a wildfire, many of the cacti were scorched, but were able to shed their skin and reveal new flesh and flowers. Other cacti displayed vibrant blooms despite having lived through several years of drought. I am inspired by the resilience of cacti in the face of change and I strive to capture their beauty and strength for all to enjoy.
