I wanted to create something that was both bizarre and familiar. I am very passionate about the beauty of nature and the beauty of Black women which fueled my desire to find a way to simultaneously express those sentiments. So while it is not normal for a woman to grow flowers from her head, I wanted to create a vision of something you may have never seen before while incorporating elements of things and people you see all the time.
