"Pretty petals in abundance. For yourself, for the Love of your life, say it with flowers that will last forever and grow in value!" - Barbara Simpson

Floral

Passionate by nature, simply put, I LOVE flowers! Floral arrangements and my garden gems are plentiful and enjoyed by many Collectors in my Art World since I began painting. Each painting defines a story in my life, all created with much energy, love and symbolism. Friendship and Every Day Love. Each painting be explored denoting impressions of people and angels in the midst of (most of) the florals I paint. Look for them!!

Professional artist-grade supplies only are used in all of my work. Read about my process here.  Each painting is original, unique, one-of-a-kind and available for collection. There are no prints.
