“Listen to the Flowers for they speak to your soul”
- K. Greenway
I create Paintings and accessories using Real Flowers that I grow, press, and set in resin and handmade, reclaimed lumber frames.
I have also been honored to create unique collage paintings with flowers from Weddings and other Special Events. I am so happy to be able to create special pieces of memories for my customers by creating special pieces of artwork.
My original pieces are all one of a kind collage paintings created using all real flowers and plants.
I love gardening and have a large cutting garden outside of my studio. I feel so lucky to be able to take a break from my artwork to wander through the garden and pick flowers. I press and dry flowers from my garden, flowers found on hikes, or given to me by friends, neighbors and family. I hand make frames, paint the backgrounds of the pieces with acrylic paints and sometimes an encaustic technique. Then, after carefully arranging the flowers, leaves or seeds, I am ready to hand pour an epoxy resin on the pieces, giving the flowers a 3 dimensional effect and adding luster to their colors.
Many of these pieces include plants like; Larkspur, Rose, Fennel, Lavender, Sage, Asparagus, Hydrangea, Daisy, Queen Anne's Lace, Columbine, Silver Dollar, and a variety of other found Wildflowers and Herbs. Many of these herbs and flowers have been used for healing and as talisman for centuries.
