Updated: Jun 22

I must have flowers, always, always. ~ Claude Monet

I couldn’t agree more with Monet’s sentiment, and it’s precisely why floral themes feature so prominently in my Hypatia books!

Flowers have a profound ability to impact our well-being. Their beauty, colors, graceful shapes, and fragrance have a transformative effect,  lifting our spirits, brightening our mood and soothing our souls. We give and receive flowers as tokens of affection, adorn our altars with them, appreciate their therapeutic qualities, lovingly tend to them in our gardens, and even communicate our emotions through flowers.

Did you know that there was a practiced Language of Flowers – “floriography” – that became especially popular during the Victorian era, where people used flower symbolism to express emotions and communicate secret messages in a subtle and coded manner?

The Language of Flowers Storyteller

The combination of exquisitely produced floral imagery in unique papers from around the world, skillfully bound into a beautiful and singular Hypatia hand-crafted art journal is a harmonious marriage that carries the inspiration, beauty and sentiment of these natural wonders into your very hands, serving as vehicles of love, hope, resilience, creativity, and care.

The Sweetest Hypatia Flower Journal

The Hypatia’s Rose journals are adorned with sweet petit florals hand-painted onto each cover. The latest batch of these leather-bound Hypatia flower beauties were done by my daughter - the true painter in the family when she's not dedicating her time as a hospice aid! I’m so touched and grateful that she agreed to take on painting these delicate florals onto different leathers and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. A heartfelt thank you to my wonderful, talented daughter, Nadia!
