Artist Flora Bowley

I am back from a little vacay which was much needed!  It's cold here in Chicago, I needed some sunshine!

I want to first thank everyone for participating in all the giveaways over the past few weeks.  I would love to keep doing them, but I am going to take a little break from them.  But, I promise promise I will pick them back up soon.  So, stayed tuned because it could be some of my new licensed art, some prints from Design Darling or even an original painting that I giveaway.  Thanks again!

I wanted to share someone who I discovered and am very much obsessed with.  She is an artist working in Portland, OR, Ms. Flora Bowley.  She has the most amazing technique and style to her paintings and I love her colors.  I have been trying to get new inspiration these days for Surtex and a few commissioned paintings that I am starting.  Flora is definitely going on my Pinterest board...the real one here in my studio and my imaginary one online.  She does seminars and teaches her techniques and if one came to Chicago, I would be first in line.  I think it's awesome that she shares as much as she does, not all artist like to give away their secrets.  Flora is all about being in the moment and don't worry what it looks like, just paint.  Check out here full portfolio here it goes back several years and you can see how she evolves and develops-love it!  What do you like about Flora?
