Meet Noël - Artist Statement
I am a flower child. I was raised in my parents' flower shop and greenhouse and eventually took over the business of growing and loving flowers.
Flowers make excellent models for painting. Flower buds are full of intrigue and mystique, while open blooms burst with grandeur and voluptuousness. Because flowers exhibit a plethora of emotions, we give them as tokens to represent or own feelings of love and caring when we are incapable of words.
With water media paints and pens, I have captured the essence of the flower, its joy and beauty. Through riotous color, unexpected shape, and calligraphic line, I am always striving to preserve the fleeting flower.
