Lily van Bienen, the artist living in France, pursues her passion for flowers in her big scale oil paintings in which she uses techniques of old masters and alla prima.

Born in Russia, married to a Dutchman, the artist is fascinated by flower pieces of old Dutch masters like Jan van Huysum, Rachel Ruysch and Jan Davidsz de Heem. For her own paintings she chooses single flowers and creates a harmonious entity of tonal rhythms and temperatures. 
After graduating from the New York Art Students' League as a student of Frank Janca and Gary Jenkins, Lily quickly found her own style of personal flower portraits. Her paintings are saturated with positive feelings and radiate joy of life and happiness.

" Your paintings are so beautiful. You are amazing", says Gary Jenkins about Lily.
Lily graduated cum laude from Moscow Linguistic University and started painting in 2009 after a successful career in television industry.
Lily finds her inspiration in flowers standing out of the crowd which tell us their story. Painting these flowers the painter wants to bring the beauty of nature and its elegance and refinement in our high- tech modern homes and offices. Lily's work constantly gets more and more exquisite and impressive.
