This series is inspired by Ikebana, a way of appreciating flowers and seasons. Key elements in traditional Japanese Ikebana are a fresh approach, movement, harmony and balance between Heaven and Earth.
This classic black and white colour palette is perfect for the realistically painted Monarch butterfly that hovers over soft dark pink cherry blossoms. The blossoms and buds symbolise the Spring season. Balance and movement is created form the composition that is viewed from above to "ten" or heaven.Commissions welcome.
