Metal is Flora’s canvas. Like a Zen alchemist, she works the surface, creating patinas through the application of an eclectic mix of chemicals and compounds on copper, brass, aluminum and steel. Through multiple applications she strives to achieve an amazing range of patterns, textures and colors.
Flora’s inspiration is nature: whether it is earthy and textural or lyrical and rhythmic. For over 30 year she has worked as an artist. During this period, her medium evolved from oil paints to the transformation of metals. Flora studio is located in San Francisco, CA.
