I’m always on the hunt for the perfect piece of art for our home – because I am so picky, to date we only have one – a striking Giclee print by Marco Crivello that takes pride of place in our living room.
When I came across this mesmerising body of work by Californian artist perfect line between the contemporary and the traditional, featuring delicate portraits of women overtaken by flowers. Blooms twist around their bodies and burst through their arms obscuring their faces. They have the wonderful nostalgic quality that fine-art portraits do but their surprising narratives make them perfect for a modern home. You can buy these and other portraits from £10 in Clare’s Etsy store Tastes Orangey.
