Silkscreen, paper collage and paint on paper. Gah!!! These gorgeous, color-saturated, flower-filled pieces are the work of Canadian artist Emily Filler. They’re already beautiful, but when you hear the story behind them, they’re even more lovely:

“The images photographs of flowers from my father’s garden that I arranged in bouquets from his vase collection.  My father is a very serious gardener and photographer, and being surrounded by flowers had a big impact on me growing up.”

Yes, clearly! {Emily must have one very proud Papa}. Happy first day of spring to my friends in the Northern Hemisphere… here’s to more flowers, less snow!

    The way the art is hung in the gallery photo is just so perfect and effective. These are wonderful!

    Beautiful work, great compositions and what a touching link with her family and childhood!

    Ohhhhh the colors. But the story behind. My father-in-law is a master gardener and is currently dying of brain cancer. These make me want to come up with a creative tribute as powerful and playful.
