Featured on Flowerona Blog

We are delighted to be featured on Flowerona blog, our favorite floral blog. Flowerona is created by Rona Weeldon to celebrate all things flower related. The UK blog covers everything flower-related including florists, artists, designers, homeware, floristry books, exhibitions, fashion, gardening, flower markets, interior design, photographers and stationery.

This is what we say in the interview: "We love to use flowers in different stages of their life: blossoms and flowers in their splendour, but also dried or dead flowers. We believe that this is the correct way to interpret life. It comprises the bloom of youth but also the wisdom of old age. Every stage of life has its own charm and beauty and we try to underline that in our floral works". Read the entire interview with DUEALBERI here.

We are also happy to take part of the wedding directory Weddingdayweardir. You will find our prints announcement in the stationary directory.

Red Roses and Artists Dates



Tuesday is the Flower market day! The market is a place of inspiration, the place for the weekly "artist date". The "artist date" is a meeting with your inner artist, with your inner child. It is the time dedicated to you solely, the time that you need in order to recharge your creative batteries.

This is what we usually do during our "artist dates":
- go for a walk in the park
- visit the flower market 
- visit a museum or an exhibition
- visit an artist's supply shop
- visit a fabric store
- go to a book store 
- planting and gardening 
- go to the Botanical garden
- get in contact with nature
- go for a bike ride
- do Tai Chi 
- do painting 
- watch a movie
- go shopping 
- go to a garden or DIY store 
- go to the flee market

 As Julia Cameron says, "playing is absolutely necessary". 

How do you play? How do you meet your inner child? Where do you go? Make a list of ten artist dates. Make it today! Make it before Christmas!

Featured Artist: The UK Artist and Illustrator Caitlihne: "Everyone and Everything on The Planet Is Here for a Reason"

Today's post features the British artist Caitlihne. She is a UK artist and illustrator. Her media include pen and ink, watercolour, digital and printmaking. She enjoy using her designs to create handmade cards and prints. She is inspired by many things amongst which are nature, birds, trees, myths, folklore and fabulous colours.

Here is the interview with her.




Tell us the five most important things about yourself.

I am a qualified nurse and midwife although I no longer practice.I am a certified treeaholic. I absolutely love trees, particularly old and gnarly ones with a history. My brother and I spent years tracing our family history and have discovered wonderful relations we didn't know we had. The earliest we have gone back is 1645 to Swaledale in Yorkshire. I am quite psychic and have had lots of strange experiences over the years. I am not religious but I am spiritual and believe every one and everything on the planet is here for a reason. I am particularly devoted to animals and birds but I don't even stand on ants because they too have their part to play, however tiny.







What inspires you?
Practically everything but if I have to narrow it down a bit I would say, nature, animals, birds - wild and domesticated, mythology of all countries, not just England, and my beloved trees of course. I am very inspired by the huge wealth of artwork to be found on the internet and blogs particularly. I also own a huge collection of art and craft books and magazines which I browse through when I am looking for inspiration for new work.




Your favorite subject to paint or draw?
My favourite subject for drawing is probably women with birds in the picture somewhere. They are usually to be found on shoulders or heads. I like drawing clothing detail and hair too. In fact, the more detail the better. I am not a minimalist. I like to be quirky and a bit weird sometimes.






What you are working on?

I have ventured into the realms of commissioned art recently and also have licenced my art for greetings cards etc. My greatest love is drawing with very fine pens and watercolour and I am working more on originals now rather than the digitally coloured prints I have produced in the past. I am also getting my etching press out of mothballs after Christmas and will be doing some drypoint printmaking which I love.
