FOR styling, Faith photographed the piece among dried white flowers, propped on
a wooden table and situated on an easel. It sets the scene of not only making a
bouquet or of decorating, but how it could work in your exact space.
For All My Golden Girls (part of the same collection) features a tribe of various sized
bouquets on a black and white striped table. A neutral beige background lets various
subjects neither overpower nor overwhelm, instead exuding a freeing feeling like the smell of
tulips on a spring day or a vase of freshly cut flowers propped in front of an open kitchen window.
In Surprise Trip to Hawaii (part of the Big and Bold collection), a royal blue background adds
depth to a vase filled with florals and greenery and sprinkles of light blue flowers. Purple brush-strokes
radiate that summer lapse between sunset and night. While Faith makes art for a happy
home, there’s also art for diverse personalities who prefer navy to cyan.
When not painting florals, many of her commissions revolve around pet portraits. She
originally tested the flower crown method on a painting of her own dog, Henry, finding a niche
incorporating two of her favorite things. Whether a dog, cow or elephant, the subjects display
raw emotion and personality.
“The eyes, it’s looking into the soul,” she says. “I get really into it and I connect with the photo
I’ve been given. It’s all about getting those eyes right. Sometimes I’ll get 20 photos of the same
dog then really pick the position and focus on the eyes and the emotion.”
