That's what she would say to you upon entering her studio.
Isn't that cool? Isn't that unique?
And the reason she would say that to you, is because this girl makes the MOST beautiful flower paintings I have ever soon.
Her name is Lullie Wallace.
And her studio is in downtown Charleston.
Have you heard of her?
If not, go check out her work at http://
I recently read an interview with Lulie and this is what the writer had to say...
In my life, I find myself attracted to the aliens around me. These aliens are not the kind that travel to earth in UFOs, but are the objects that, at first glance, appear to be everyday objects, but upon a closer look, are distinguished by uniqueness and character. If I am purchasing something that is going to be a part of my everyday life, I seem to gravitate towards furniture, clothing, jewelry, and art that have a bit of an alien quality to them. They look as though they’ve been plucked from somewhere else, but feel at home in my life.
My aliens take form in a lime green tabletop, a magenta shadow, or in vibrant teal greenery. A painting of flowers in a vase is an obvious subject matter to most collectors or observers, but what I want my art to achieve through color, shape, and texture is the balance of uniqueness, character, and honest materiality.
