Bloom is a collection of paintings inspired by the fresh cut flowers of Island Meadow Farms by local artist Emily Howard.
The 33-year-old Emily Howard is preparing for her new art show at The Guild in Charlottetown. “I began, like every self-taught artist, with Mr. Dressup and watercolour paints,” she said.
Her first paintings were abstract. Now, this collection of bold florals.
“I just wanted to do something that, when you look at it, it’s calm. Everyone loves flowers,” Ms. Howard said.
She always has fresh flowers in the house.
Bloom is at The Guild August 24 through September 5.
