Hello, welcome! I am Maureen, aka "The Painted Petaler", a lifelong lover of anything to do with creating art. (Especially creating lifelike paper flowers, drawing, sculpting mini flowers & painting).
Creating beautiful and fun art is a passion and one characteristic that you will find that makes The Painted Petaler different from other paper florists is... I LOVE DETAIL and truly love communicating with my customers to offer top notch customer service and satisfaction of the final product. My designs are created completely by hand and without templates, paper punches or machines.
I credit my A.D.D. For allowing me to hyper focus on each hand cut petal and detailed bloom and my psoriatic arthritis diagnosis for giving me that push to create my brand instead of having regrets in the future for waiting. Life is short- do what you love!
I love to have customers find details that were not noticed before. My secret that you now know is I love hiding mini details in my paintings for those who take the time to really, really look at my paintings.
With my paper flowers, my inspiration comes from actual flowers, not copies of other artists work. Creating custom work is a passion and one day I hope to scratch off my bucket list: Designs featured in magazine editorial and decorating a favorite Vegas casino with my original playing card flowers!

I look forward to working with you as your own, personal paper florist!
