Inspiration behind Synonyms for Wild-flowers series:
Our entire world was turned upside-down, but the wildflowers didn’t care.
They still emerged en masse - along the side of busy highways, in dry fields roasting in the sun, beneath crevasses in limestone. Really any place that defies the laws of what I consider an opportune growing condition for a plant.
Like many at the beginning of March 2020, I was desperate for a sense of normalcy. The wildflowers brought that, but I also found myself equally annoyed by their presence. How were they allowed to just exist as though everything was right with the world? It was borderline snobbish.
From there, this “Alice In Wonderland-esc” series was born. A child of my combined amusement of personifying flora as anything other than beautiful and my pandemic mental state where I found myself disdainful of flowers.

Get to Know the Austin Artist:
Hello there, I’m Toni. I’m perpetually nostalgic and my work is largely inspired by wistful memories. When I’m creating my images, I often feel like I’m trying to recall a dream – one with overwhelming sensations but fragmented details I can barely put my finger on. I’m also always looking for ways to push the physics of photography, i.e. light, space and time.
Creating art brings me so much joy. I’m my happiest self when I take a small spark of an idea and turn it into something tangible to share with others. Enjoy!
