Welcome to Pétale

I have loved flowers all my life. I've always believed them to be the most beautiful of Mother Nature's creations. Many artists have been inspired by flowers and I am one of them. Flowers make me happy!

I left a 14 year old business and career as a Fashion Designer and Lifestyle Artist in my native country of Ghana to start life all over again in the USA. At the peak of my career, I was burnt out and disillusioned about my chosen profession. After taking time out to re evaluate my life and my career, I realized that Fashion, Art, Design and making women look and feel beautiful will always be my passion and my calling!

This time, however, my number one priority is to stay true and authentic, to always and only come from a place of Love. The only standard by which I will measure myself and my life will be love, love for everything that I do, everything that I create and I know this is what will sustain and nurture me as I embark on this new and exciting second chance at life that I've been given.

I have always been passionate and curious about Haute Couture, the old world techniques which made the gowns that carried the prestigious name, timeless works of art. I have been studying Couture for a while now and in my studies, the first technique to grab my attention and keep me mesmerized has been the art of creating silk flowers. As an artist/painter, Georgia O'Keefe's abstract, close up flowers have also inspired me and I also intend to follow her lead and continue to explore the many ways in which I can present flowers to the world through my eyes and from my heart.

Ultimately, anything I can create and everything that inspires me when it comes to flowers is what this blog is all about.

I intend to share my passion and my experiences with you as I continue this wondrous journey, in my quest to strive to be in the 'image and likeness' of my creator and see if I can just experience a little of what Mother Nature experiences when she creates the ultimate work of art, Flowers!
