Drawing from the language of flowers, The Talking Bouquet represents a three-part series about one's well-being. The subject embroidered on these prints is referred to as Everywoman. She starts at a point of commonality titled Coriander and evolves from contemplative what-ifs in Hollyhock to recognizing her voice in the final part aptly titled Chrysanthemum. Everywoman's hidden worth is celebrated with ambition as she finds the truth in her life when she drifts away from any type of imagined or realized compartment that society has placed her.
