Artist, Meredith Hayden of Louisville is currently showing at Heine Brother's Coffee Shop on Douglas Loop. She transforms the softness of watercolor and pastel painting into stunning works which identify the beauty of a moment.
'Art has always been my passion, though it has bloomed in many ways over the course of my life. These flowers symbolize each of us and our struggle to overcome suffering and bloom in a beautiful way just as we are, where we are. I always use live flowers for my inspiration. It is so inspiring to see the flowers on their journey to open, and when they wilt, I love to bring them back to life with vibrant colors.'
