A truly unique floral artist Danielle O’Connor Akiyama, was first published by Demontfort Fine Art publishers in 2007 and has since gone from strength to strength and her portfolio currently stands at 8 published pieces. Her new release is called ‘Heart’s Desire.’

What I like about the Canadian’s work is the vibrant and bold colours that believe it or not is unique to the limited edition, Floral, art marker. I donâ€™t think I have ever seen such striking colours on floral art before and Danielleâ€™s work stands out from the crowd

All her work so far has been produced on â€˜Box Canvas,â€™ which of course is another reason for its contemporary feel and the popularity of this format of art form has not declined, despite some thinking it had peaked in 2006. (see my post on the art trade’s opinion on Box Canvasâ€™s www.fineartblog.co.uk/?p=22 )
Look at Danielle’ s ‘Hope Begins Anew’ series (I, II, III) I feel this highlights the uniqueness of her work, the bold colours set against a cold white background, wow!

My message to the artist, please keep doing what you are doing, it works!
