The Barefoot Florist

Arts and Culture Frankston

Description

As part of the re-paint Frankston campaign, designed to support local artists in activating empty shopfronts, this imaginary florist is the place where flowers never wilt!

The effervescent and carefree spirit of Sara Catena’s barefoot florist is designed to lift the spirits of all who pass by.

Description

Artist Bio:
Sara Catena was raised on a diet of nature, traditional handcrafts, and pots of tea, in a small country town on the coast of New Zealand, moving to Melbourne in early 1992.

A local Frankston resident, Sara’s uplifting and naïve work inspires art teachers and students worldwide…she has worked with teachers and children from places as far flung and diverse as Bahrain and Uruguay…she delights in seeing the results and connecting with them personally via skype.

“As a painter, I work narratively with acrylic, oil stick and embroidery thread on recycled elements. These works express my natural delight and enthusiasm for life… a vitality and a joy that speaks to the heart. My beautiful sensory installations are highly kinaesthetic immersive art spaces aimed to soothe additional needs families at large events.”

“In the space between you and the work, is a bridge. My hope is that you cross that bridge and find some Joy there.”
