The Importance of Color

The colors, shapes, and textures of flowers always seem to be telling a story. This is why flowers have been enjoyed not just for their sensory delights but also for their symbolic meaning.

Poppy is the flower of beauty, magic, consolation, fertility and eternal life. 

  • Red Poppies signify pleasure and remembrance
  • Yellow Poppies signify wealth and success
  • Blue Poppies signify mystery, attaining the impossible, and love at first sight
  • Orange Poppies or the flame flower ignites intuition and awareness of dreams and imagination.It stimulates joy and deepens ones connection with nature

Color can influence our emotions, our actions and how we respond to various people, things and ideas. Much has been studied and written about color and its impact on our daily lives.

Green peridot is a stone of lightness and beauty. It protects, heals and soothes.

The Meaning and Magical properties of Silk

  • luxury

About SilkArt

The magical charm and mesmerizing quality of silk compelled me to embrace it as my canvas of choice.
The abstract series has been created using brushes but without using gutta or resist.
This free approach allows the dyes to travel freely across the silk and the results surprise and excite me every time.The process is very intense and I have to be quick to get in as much detail as I can before the dyes dry.
There are no second chances in this process!
