About

HOW LOOSE PETALS BEGAN...

After college, I worked in the Silicon Valley where I would visit the galleries in Palo Alto and was inspired by the unique handcrafts by local artists. It was a time wholesaling art to retailers was emerging as a cottage industry. Coincidentally, I began reading a best selling book of the year "Do What You Love to Do and The Money Will Follow." The title of the book is the mantra that influenced me to leave my day job and sell art for a living.

I named my company Loose Petals because l adore flowers for their organic shapes and colors. I was in the South of France, when the name Loose Petals came to mind and this was the start of my art career. For twenty years I've been distributing and publishing the Loose Petals greeting card line nationwide. I've worked for private and non-profit sectors, entertainment figures, and launched one of the first indie websites.

As a green brand, I source vendors that mill recycled papers on renewable power. It's a better choice for the environment, and I appreciate the added character of recycled flecks in my paper. It gives my art an added layer of depth and interest. Nothing is ever wasted here and we donate materials and proceeds to charity.

My poster style is influenced by my own travels around the world, retro posters, textiles, and vintage European ephemera. You'll find a mix of elements in my posters. I appreciate modern European and Japanese design for its simplicity, and Bauhaus less is more attitude.

When I begin a skyline, I do extensive photo research, and turn each photo into my own personal vision of what the city could be in my own artistic way. Nothing is ever sketched first. Colors and shapes are applied intuitively and I keep going over each composition until it feels complete.

The skylines are described as "whimsical," "inviting," "vintage," and "rare" by viewers. My vision is to create timeless art that serves as reminders of special places that are artfully unique yet illustrated tightly.

I have a B.S in Art from Oregon State and I'm a classically trained textile painter.

I am originally from San Francisco, and I now live in Chicago, where I have local artists help me with day to day operations.

WRAPPED CANVAS PRINTS

8 x 10/.75 depth
11 x 14/.75 depth
16 x 20/.75 depth
24 x 30/1.50 depth
36 x 4/1.50 depth

Ikea Ribba frames have small mat board openings and we do not recommend them.

Please read our guide prior to purchase.

A mat that comes with a frame requires a frame that is larger than the artwork. Example, an 8 x 10” print requires a larger frame the next size up such as 11 x 14 to fit both the artwork and the mat inside. A mat board enlarges the appearance of the print.

When you have multiple prints with different orientations you have alternative options to frame and hang your art.

For framing note cards and hanging vertical and horizontal prints these are some suggestions.

1) Glass frames

2) Collage by mounting multiple art prints

3) Visit our Loose Petals Pinterest board or read articles on the loosepetals.com blog for more ideas

Measurements of the mat and frame openings and dimensions vary between manufacturers. Verify and confirm the required dimensions and style of frame to match your artwork. Normally a quarter inch or less of the art will be covered by a mat board bevel.

We offer wrapped canvas, as a ready to hang solution:

We do not recommend Ikea Ribba frames, the mat opening covers too much artwork
