Sussanne Morton Ehlers  

I have always loved flowers and beautiful gardens as long as I can remember. In my earliest childhood memory, I remember playing in my neighbor’s tulip bed in my small home town of Rejsby in Denmark. The flowers were so bright and beautiful, yet so fragile. It always amazed me how they could bring so much joy to someone’s life and yet so much upset when they were gone! I realized flowers had the power to incite happiness!

 

The inspiration behind my work emerges from my own experience of feeling joyful under the sun in a garden or field of flowers. Of my adventures, past and present, days I’ve spent exploring, my paintings are born from a desire to share this beauty. Nature’s hidden secrets and designs, ‘captured moments’ and the joy of beautiful flowers I have discovered along the way.
