“I have always been in awe of nature’s beauty. To me, wildflowers are a symbol of the abundance of beauty in the world, if you are willing to search for it.”
Artist Paula Taccone-Lefferts has been a professional Graphic Designer for more than 25 years. For the past 10 years, she has devoted more time to her passion, which is painting and drawing wildflowers.
“I discovered the beauty of wildflowers when I accompanied my husband on his fly fishing expeditions. While exploring the banks of many different streams throughout New England, I became enthralled and captivated by the unique and simple beauty of ordinary wildflowers. I decided to focus my attention on botanicals through the medium of graphite pencil and watercolor. I often work on location, so I can capture the natural beauty of the flowers in their own habitat.”
Paula T. Lefferts is a graduate of the University of Rhode Island, where she graduated with a BS degree in Textile Design and a minor in Fine Art. She lives in Sandy Hook, Connecticut with her husband and 3 children.
