Description The sunflower is native to most of North America, even as early as 3000 BC when it was cultivated by Native American peoples. It was an important source of food and medicine as well as a pigment for body paint. This majestic, sunshine yellow perennial can reach four metres in height and was regarded as sacred. At religious festivals in Peru, young women carried garlands or bunches of sunflowers and breastplates of pure gold were even fashioned with depictions of the sunflower. ~~ The Language of Flowers, Marina Heilmeyer
Dawn LeBlanc, Edmonton, Alberta Member Since June 2008 Artist Statement
A graphic designer by trade, Dawn is a semi-professional photographer whose images are held in private collections throughout North America and Europe. Her images have appeared in national publications, books, and newspapers. A latecomer to photography, Dawn began a journey with her camera that immediately engaged, captivated and consumed her. The photographs that have materialized reflect her admiration of nature as she looks at underlying forms, shapes and colour, seeking to strip away distracting detail and discover the play of light and shadow that can make the ordinary extraordinary. She hopes that in presenting things the way she does, others might also recognize and share in the simple solace and beauty of the natural world.
