ABOUT THE ARTWORK:
Blue Daisy was inspired by travelling through the regional areas of Northern France including Giverny, particularly by the fields of wildflowers and the region’s vivid colours including Monet’s Garden. The circular composition draws the viewer in as if peering through a looking glass. Through this work I wanted to create a whimsical feeling inspiring a sense of joy.
Being in the creative design field throughout my working life led me to experience joy and happiness though floral painting. When I started Petale Art, I wanted my love for flowers and their positive impact in peoples’ lives to come through on canvases that emanated warmth, happiness and sunshine. Flowers are beautiful and unique however have a fragile lifespan. Bringing them to everlasting life on a canvas provides joy for me and I hope for all who take my art into their home.
