Creating Flower Petal Art with @lovelimzy

For more photos and videos of Limzy’s artwork, follow @lovelimzy on Instagram.

"I believe art is not meant to be found only on walls or in high-end galleries," says Malaysian Instagrammer Lim Zhi Wei, who goes by Limzy (@lovelimzy) as an artist in Singapore. Soon after she started using Instagram, Limzy began to think of her Instagram account as a small gallery for her artwork that she could curate herself.

Limzy’s art is a combination of hand-drawn illustrations and random objects from stones and leaves to cereal and stationary. Her most recent series combines watercolor illustrations with flower petals, an idea she came up with as a birthday gift for her grandmother. “I pressed some rose petals and made her a bookmark with a painted girl wearing a petal dress. That’s how the floral works started,” she reflects. For Limzy, the most important elements in her photos are natural lighting and a piece of white paper. She often rushes home from work to complete and capture her project before sunset.

As a full-time art teacher until last year, Limzy missed days where she could sit and paint for hours. She says her projects have allowed her to create art in simple, fun and quick ways, and Instagram became a complementary element in her work. Her photos preserve the flowers at their freshest and also allow her to share her creativity to a broad group of people. She asserts, “Photography is amazing in that it acts like a time capsule to freeze that moment.”

So sweet and simple.
