Photos courtesy of Amy Merrick Amy Merrick's flower arrangements have an ethereal, otherworldly quality to them. Their free and unbridled-ness make them an instant mood-uplifter. The Brooklyn-based floral artist includes an array of natural elements, also found in the wild, so the unexpected addition of fruit or branches adds a whimsical element. And the way she photographs her creations, the arrangements really take on an Old Master painting still-life quality. I adore her work and think you will too. An arrangement taking shape. A yellow arrangement reads spring. The containers Amy chooses provide an additional storytelling element. Lush greenery. Dahlias! And cherries. Moody pinks and reds. A perfect still life.
