Here is what she had to say about her piece:
When I saw the photo of the Hibiscus shown in my thumbnails, I knew it was the flower I wanted to use. The color of the petals was so striking to me, especially against the green background. I also loved the shape of the gently curving petals and immediately thought I could model them.
