Bottled Wildflowers

Decorating my art studio with a myriad of hunted treasures is something I never get tired of doing. Old bottles, new bottles, broken doll parts, butterfly wings, and dried flowers from the garden seem to be staples on the nearby wooden shelves that embrace my painted canvases, as well as those yearning for attention. One foot in an antique store, or even browsing the internet, and I know there's trouble at the forefront... I always find something I feel I can't live without, something that can't

With a natural, slightly rustic, aesthetic, transforming wine bottles (and other things, like old shoes) into vases is another favorite, so when I spotted this beautiful 2010 Belair-Monange St. Emilion from JJ Buckley, I knew all it needed was a handful of wildflowers.

At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
