Flower Art Inspiration

When I’m looking for inspiration to create flower art I love to study Kim Parker‘s flower paintings. I discovered her art on the internet a couple of years ago and it never ceases to inspire and amaze me. I love all her flowers designs and the way she uses bold bright colors.

 Here are two flower paintings I did this past year that were inspired by Kim Parker”s art.

I love to look through Kim Parker Home and see her flower art and how she uses it to decorate her apartment in NYC. In her book she also shares how she came to be part of the art, fashion and home décor world even though her education is in music. She has a degree in flute performance. Here is a peek into her book:
