There’s a natural flow to Birgitt Olislagers’ creative practice, in all its multitude. Stretching across a variety of mediums, her work includes watercolor illustrations, collage art, and embroidery, amongst other mediums.
A common thread throughout her work is an emphasis on nature, with a specific interest in plants and flowers. “We at Olislagers have a passion for art and are inspired by nature,” reads her studio’s website. “Plants bring a room to life in a way that nothing else can. But let’s be honest, these living creatures need space, light, water and lots of love. With this new collection, we offer everyone the possibility to create an urban jungle however big or small.”
Olislagers’ love of plants is quite literal, as both her artwork and her work environment is steeped in greenery. Based in Maastricht, the Netherlands, the great outdoors also provides Olislagers a natural source of inspiration. And more specifically, the changing of seasons.
“With the coming and going of seasons, there is always something to discover,” she writes. “Whether it’s small like a flower in bloom or big as the ever-changing lights and colors in the sky, all you have to do is take a step back, really look around you and find that there is beauty everywhere.”
