Daye Deura, New York City Member Since October 2009 Artist Statement Grew up in Japan. Came to NYC 17 years ago. Didn’t know what I was going to do and live this long in NYC. I met an Australian floral and event designer, Antony Todd(He is very successful in NYC, now), started working for him. While I was pursing to design window display, I was more drawn to floral design. Because it was an instant artistic gratification for me. I became freelance floral designer and also now the owner of Flowers by Daye.(www.flowersbydaye.com) As I have been closely looking at flowers all the time, with my new Nikon D 40 camera I started capturing deep inside of the floral beauty. I am still a florist but I am avid and serious floral close up dedicated photographer.
I hope you enjoy my art world of close up floral photos.
