Flowers are not just a pretty face on the planet. They serve us as medicines, keep bad bugs at the garden gates and invites the GOOD garden bugs while presenting us the most glorious blanket of colours discovered on the planet. When I see wildflowers growing I can see its intricate beauty but also know it is perfectly designed to feed the right kind of bug and bird. Grow purple flowers for an invitation to butterflies and hummingbirds.




Pink Petal Blast By Minaz Jantz

Flowers in art history has been used as symbols like orchids say sex, roses have power & tulips meant wealth in Dutch society and who don't think of Van Gogh when we see sunflowers or Monet who celebrates water lilies with lush strokes.



Triple Tease Tulips by Minaz Jantz

The Dutch in the 17th century brought flowers as the main composition breaking away from religious topics and where painted small so anyone who was the influential growing middle class would show their wealth by the types of flowers painted like the crazed bid for the most prized tulips costing fortunes called Tulip Mania.

My favourite 'things' are objects that catch my interest and where I will showcase design elements, shapely lines, surface texture and colour. 




Midnight Geraniums by Minaz Jantz
SOLD


I have studied interior design and had drilled into my being that all angles, curves and spaces have energy and should have a reason to create a space with the natural flow for what it is designed. Studying the history of furniture was most fascinating to me and how we have changed in our lives and so has our furniture but the good design has always been the pride of craftsperson no matter the century. 



Coming & Going by Minaz Jantz
SOLD


Chairs have personalities too and if each chair and couch could talk, it would say so much about the occupants who share its purpose.

Interior Jazz by Minaz Jantz
SOLD


Everyday 'things' can be dramatic and tell a story or set a mood. The object is seen to be more abstract but the symbolic meaning of the thing may be personal in nature.


Sunflower Diptych (TOP) Bee; Oil on 12"x12" Canvas by Minaz Jantz

Sunflower Diptych (Bottom) Ladybug & Caterpiller; Oil on 12"x12" Canvas by Minaz Jantz


The Sunflower Diptych was a gift to my sister Lori. We have a connection around Lady Bugs and have gifted cutesy things with ladybugs. The caterpillar is a Monarch butterfly to be and then there is the worlds busy BEE who gives us food. My sister is studying to be a pastry chef so the BEE is very symbolic of what she offers to those lucky enough to eat her artisan loaves of bread and pastries! Lori has a collection of my art that goes back to the beginning and it was TIME for her to have a new piece to freshen up her art collection. My 2 sisters pooled their gift dollars together and bought me framing tools so now I can offer complete framing services. I enjoy using tools and look forward to making my own frames for my future art collectors!
