The Importance of Color

The colors, shapes, and textures of flowers always seem to be telling a story. This is why flowers have been enjoyed not just for their sensory delights but also for their symbolic meaning.

Hawthorn symbolizes hope, yin and yang, fertility, good luck, and supreme happiness. 

  • The blue Hawthorn symbolizes peace and tranquility
  • The  pink Hawthorn symbolizes love, happiness, gentleness, and femininity
  • The purple Hawthorn symbolizes success, royalty, admiration, and tradition   

 Color can influence our emotions, our actions and how we respond to various people, things and ideas. Much has been studied and written about color and   its impact on our daily lives. 

  • Green symbolizes life, nature, fertility, and well being

About SilkArt

  • The magical charm and mesmerizing quality of silk compelled me to embrace it as my canvas of choice.
  • The abstract series has been created using brushes but without using gutta or resist.
  • This free approach allows the dyes to travel freely across the silk and the results surprise and excite me every time.
  • The process is very intense and I have to be quick to get in as much detail as I can before the dyes dry.
  • There are no second chances in this process.
