About Petal to Petal

Lily Reilly lives in the beautiful countryside of West Cork with her husband and their little cats Poppy and Mia. Lily holds a BA in Design Communication and a BA Honours in Art and Design Teaching, both from Crawford College of Art and Design.

Aside from working on fine art pieces, prints, greeting cards and wedding stationery commissions, Lily regularly features both established and up and coming artists and designers on her blog.

Lily takes inspiration from the patterns in nature and especially those found in flowers. She particularly loves working in monochrome and just concentrating on the shapes and detail of a pattern. Of her work she says, 'I am inspired by patterns in nature, the endless inspiration of the natural world that is often overlooked. I especially love the detail and patterns in flowers. When working I tend to amalgamate the most intriguing detail from a number of different flowers into one representation. My favourite medium is rapidograph pen, as I like the quality of the dark ink and the intricate detail that it allows. I generally use the same pattern, which I have titled ‘Flower Bomb’ in most of my work. The pattern explodes and disperses and I like to experiment with it and use it in different ways. My aim is to create beautiful objects and pieces of art that people would love to wear or have in their homes.'

Inspired also by the Arts & Crafts Movement, particularly by the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and William Morris, Lily’s favourite quote is by Morris - "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. "
