Gladden Art and Wearables
It begins in the garden, hand picking beautiful flowers and foliage. Flowers are pressed, often petal by petal. Once dry and paper-thin they are ready to be used in a collage. Time and care is given to selecting petals and foliage and re-imagining how they might come together to create beauty. The original works of art are then printed so that the beauty of the garden can be brought into our everyday lives in new ways. Gladden Art and Design offers fine art prints and silk scarves, printed and sewn in Montreal, Canada.
Creating has been a part of Deborah's life as long as she can remember. Whether it was an apple pie for her dad, a gift for someone special or these pressed petal and leaf collages — she creates to bring joy and show love. Deborah's pressed petal and leaf collages are inspired by the exquisite beauty of the garden. She was captivated by how when, pressed paper thin, this beauty becomes magnified. Re-imagined, the variation of colour, form and, often overlooked details in flowers and foliage, become showcased. Flowers in the garden fade, by printing her designs, not only can their vibrancy be retained but the beauty of the petals and foliage can be brought into our everyday lives in new ways.
