From eternal life to humility and devotion, flowers have had many meanings throughout time. From youth, enlightenment, faith, hope, the divine, beauty, to chastity, fertility, fragility, hope and rebirth; these blossoming fragile creatures are the most beautiful life forms on the planet, and yet one of the most transitory in terms of life span. In her latest underwater collection Hybrids, Rogers creates hybrid human and flower beings, photographed underwater using her rare techniques and style that have gained her International recognition. To encapsulate the feelings and her message into the final works, she then created watercolor and acrylic paintings that she meticulously layered into several of the final images.

Rogers explains “my favorite quote that was inspiring me along the way was from― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince “She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her… I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her…”
