Season Two - Autumn/Winter 2021


Who is Flossiphy?

The

name Flossiphy comes from a mixture of “Floss”, my childhood nickname, and the word philosophy, an important word for the basis of my life. My philosophy is to love and be loved and all the while enjoying nature. I’ve always looked at Water Colour Art and thought: “Wow, but never thought I could paint even a simple flower or leaf ”. I’ve loved doing craft over my lifetime and when our family was facing some huge challenges I found that depression started to take the joy out of my crafting. I wondered if I should be spending the time doing these things but soon found out how important it is to create little pockets of joy and started painting with my kid’s old watercolour paints and brushes. It has been a really beautiful journey of discovery. I hope you enjoy my designs as much as I enjoyed painting them.

Single Buddies My single friends are very precious to me and I have a few of them. Each one of them stand alone but are not alone. Each one is strong and also frail. Each one is unique and holds a special place in my heart and always will.

BLUE ROSE Naturally Blue Roses dont exist because rose DNA doesn’t contain the blue pigment. In some cultures there is a belief that those who attain a Blue Rose will have all their wishes come true.

Autumn Feels

It’s an amazing time of the year when there are fresh mornings and cool evenings where we can snuggle up with an old familiar blanket. The colours of the leaves are turning and the last buds of the rose bushes match the colour of the crisp fruits, ready for us to enjoy.

Graced Graced is a collection of elements that were gathered on my desk after walking and collecting bits of nature, being blown by the wind. Taking the time to look closely at each piece of nature Grace changes how we see everything.

celebrating Carnations Carnations are such a tradional flower and the scent of the old varieties reminds me of cloves. These delicate crinkley flowers are making a comeback and it’s so nice to see them in all the new colours as they’re so robust and versatile.
