Ingra's Garden Images
Using petals like paint my work is a modern approach to traditional pressed flowers.
Smaller framed pictures range from$12 to $80. Larger archivally matted and framed pictures are $95 to $800
I grow the flowers and other botanicals in my own garden in Millcreek Utah and press everything myself. No dyes or coloring have been added and all designs are original.
Design – My training is in lighting design for theater and dance having earned a Fine Arts degree from the University of Utah. At that time I painted with light. Now I paint with flowers in a continuing exploration of the boldness and subtleties of color.
Technique –All flower petals are preserved by drying in my presses. Thicker flowers take 4 to 6 weeks to press dry while the thinner petals like tulips take 2 to 3 weeks. No dyes or coloring have been added.
Flowers – The natural world is powerful and compelling to me. I love merging my passion and awe for nature with the art of creating. Using pressed flowers, leaves and plants helps me to express that passion. My love for gardening is inherited from my grandparents, Lila and Basil. They sparked an interest and zest for gardening that has grown and strengthened with time.
