I came across these lovely pieces of orchid artwork, and I wanted to share them with you along with some information about the artist. She has a number of prints featuring a wide range of subjects, but of course I’m particularly fond of the orchid prints.
The artist is Juliana Swenson. She grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where they have an amazing botanical garden featuring many varieties of orchids among other tropical plants. When she was little, she went there with her school on a field trip. She was most impressed by the delicacy of the orchids. That was the beginning of her love for orchids, and she went back to the garden several times to visit them.
Her inspiration comes from nature, life, fashion, art, photography, and interior design… She is constantly surrounding herself with visuals that make her happy. She describes herself as a very colorful person.
She started working on the illustrations last year, but just now put them up for sale a few months ago. She works on these in her spare time since she owns a graphic design studio and is the Co-Founder of Ecosaurus, an online green paper company.
She lives in Arizona now, and although the desert is beautiful, she misses the rain fores. It is always on her mind.
“Orchids are part of the rain forest. They are feminine, colorful and beautiful. I believe they are the most perfect flowers.”
Go check out her orchid prints now! They are truly beautiful works. And if you are looking for wrapping paper, gift bags, notecards, etc that are friendly to the planet, visit her store Ecosaurus as well.
