DescriptionBright white daylilies set against a vibrant red background. Besides blue, white is one of the only colors that daylilies are not availble in. So I've altered these lovely flowers to create what is not possible in nature. Daylilies are sometimes called the perfect perennial due to many factors.Their ability to tolerate drought, they thrive in many growing zones,and come in a wide variety of beautiful colors. Lighter colored daylilies need more sun to bring out their colors while the darker varieties require more shade. Besides beautifying our gardens, some varieties are edible and used in Chinese cuisine. Some are also used for medicinal purposes but do to some species toxicity caution must be used.

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!
