Welcome, here's a bit about me & my process...
Fleur's unique contemporary ‘stitched’ paintings are a celebration of the artists connection with the natural world, love of textiles and eclectic aesthetic.
Creating from her beautiful studio gallery in the heart of rural Upper Moutere, New Zealand Fleur is immediately connected to nature on a daily basis through her close proximity to national parks, country gardens and vineyards. Undoubtably the best spot for this talented artist to create her multi layered artworks.
Mostly self taught, Fleur’s process has developed through years of experimentation and development in the studio. Particularly drawn to textiles she loves nothing more than dragging large swags of linen into the gallery garden to pour, brush, splash & drip abstract layers of washy paint onto it’s surface. Once dry this becomes the base layer for fine botanical details applied in gouache and then intricate elements of stitch to bring a final element of texture.
This signature slow stitched element of Fleur’s work reflects the time & energy the botanical elements take to manifest themselves and allows this flora loving artist the time to shine an intricate light on their quirky elements and fragile beauty.
Ultimately Fleur’s pieces are one of a kind keepsakes that transcend trends. Luckily while her originals are sometimes hard to come by you can find an incredible level of detail in her limited edition prints that provide a wonderful option for collecting.
