 Art Nouveau
by Vanessa Heart

I've always been inspired the architecture, fashion and art of the 19th century. Ever since I was a tiny child, I would insist that my parents took me to tour the Victorian homes in the area and I often fanaticized about returning to a time period that seemed all so familiar. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, but I do believe in reincarnation. I love to be surrounded by the delicate lace, and detailed workmanship that went into every item from that time period. I surround myself with antiques and often watch documentaries regarding that era or read historical books about local turn of the century homes in my current city of Denver.

Alphonse Mucha Artwork Example

 I like to emulate the things I love such as the artwork of Alphonse Mucha. So I decided to put my passions of the era into my artwork; I wanted to create images that depited that era. As an artist, I created this beautiful flower crown and partnered with photographer Rick Escalante to create some images that would reflect my love of a time long passed.
