Statement: “Purple Prickly was inspired by the Santa-Rita prickly pear (Opuntia violacea var. santa rita). The color contrast of their blue-grey pads and the shades of purple make it one of the most colorful of the prickly pear cacti. Both the pads and fruit are edible. Cold temperature and drought intensify the purple color. Lovely yellow flowers appear in the spring followed by red fruit in the summer months.  Inspired by the colors and textures of the flora of my surroundings, flowers and plant life are a favorite subject of mine. I enjoy layering fabrics, ribbons, trim, thread and beads to depict real and imaginative flowers.”
