Description

From field to forest and stream to sky, capture the harmony and beauty of the natural world with just some paper, flowers, leaves, and twigs.

Creating stunning yet fleeting works of art, artist Vicki Rawlins of Sister Golden defies the notion that art should be permanent. Using only the natural world and its gifts as her medium, Vicki forages for her materials and arranges them into stunning works of art.

Equipped with just scissors and tweezers, and using gravity as her glue, Vicki creates magical scenes and detailed portraits out of twigs, leaves, and flowers. After documenting her finished piece with a photo, she gifts her materials back to Mother Nature, or repurposes them in her next creation. The process is therapeutic, and the possibilities are endless!

A charming exploration of imagination and possibility, The Power of Flowers offers a window into the creative process behind these natural artworks and abundant inspiration with a striking kaleidoscope of art pieces, including:

  • Famous faces, like Frida Kahlo, John Lennon, Einstein, Diana Ross, and more
  • Whimsical scenes featuring blooming gardens, moonlit forests, seaside cottages, and woodland animals.
  • Seasonal pieces inspired by the magic of the holidays
  • Contemplative art reflecting love, inner strength, and positive energy.


With her uniquely imaginative artistic vision, Vicki takes you deeper into her world by sharing her process, her sustainable approach to art, and anecdotes about what inspired her to create. Let yourself get lost in The Power of Flowers.

From field to forest and stream to sky, capture the harmony and beauty of the natural world with just some paper, flowers, leaves, and twigs.

I'm in love.

The Power of Flowers had me at the photo of the author Vicki Rawlins face of joy in the introduction. I knew then that this book would be fantastic. She captures the joy of flowers and the limitless possibilities of what flowers can do for the soul.

There is a dresser with sections in drawers of dried flowers, how great is that? Photos of her foraging and then letting her artistry and creativity run happily wild.

I so highly recommend this fabulous book The Power of Flowers by Vicki Rawlins.

I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher Quartro Publishing who struck gold or should I say a bounty with this gorgeous book, and the opportunity to read and review it.
