Description The beautiful Canna Lily in a deep dark blue with a neutral background.The Canna lily is a large elegant flower but it is also a surprisingly versatile plant.The seeds are used as beads in jewelry. Fiber obtained from the leaves of the plant is used for making paper. All parts of the stem, foliage and rhizome are consumed by either livestock or humans. A purple dye is made from the seeds. Smoke from burning the leaves is used as an insecticide. In remote parts of India, the Canna is fermented to produce alcohol. In Vietnam canna starch is used to make noodles. The Canna is also a traditional Father's Day gift in Thailand. So many uses for such a lovely plant.
Shawna Rowe Member Since July 2012 Artist Statement I grew up in a creative family who loved photography, music, art and random hiking adventures. That helped me to develop a love for nature and artistic expression early on. I've never limited myself to one particular medium but I do favor graphic shapes, bold colors and whimsical style. Whatever the medium, I try to include some or all of those elements in my work.
My family has always been a big inspiration and they feature in a series of satirical cartoons that I've done just for fun over the years. Each year I make a new cartoon to celebrate each of my daughter's birthdays. I've also made my own greeting cards for family members over the years.
Lately, I've been making detailed magazine collages. Each one is made of 100% recycled paper cut into tiny shapes and carefully applied much like paint onto canvas. It's an art-form that requires a lot of time and patience but I love this unusual way of creating. Thank you for visiting my gallery!
