Art in Bloom

publisheRS OF the finest quality Limited Edition and Open Edition Prints of the paintings of British floral artist Karen Hollis.

Hollis paints bold and bright floral paintings that capture the very essence of the flower. Her rose paintings have a real sensuousness to them. Each painting depicts deep curves and swirls. Her lily paintings are suffused with light which creates shade and depth. While the complex shapes of her orchid paintings show blends and twists, each revealing hidden depths.

Karen uses both oil paint and acrylic paint to create her lively canvases. Using the fluidity of the oil paints she creates smooth blends and deep shapes. While acrylic paints allow her to create glazes that give deep warm tones that overlay her strong shapes, creating flowers of rich hues.

Hollis’s work differs from traditional botanical art as her main aim is to capture the way light falls across a bloom. This gives the flower it’s body and strength. She aims to capture the essence of the flower not the accuracy.

Art in Bloom limited edition giclée prints are available in colours to suit any interior. Whether you’d like bright accent colours to enhance a neutral scheme or you’d like to add vibrancy to an already confident and striking interior, an Art in Bloom floral print will always make an impact.
