Wildflower Child is an homage to both the Victorian fairy illustrations and paintings that Ursula Young grew up with in England and the colorful free-spirited love vibrations that were present 50 years ago during San Francisco’s Summer of Love. She provides a modern-day interpretation of the whimsical drawings against a Northern Califorinia background with an emphasis on the wildflowers abundant after the wettest winter in recent history.
Ursula Xanthe Young is a painter, illustrator, and graphic designer whose urban fairy tale images have become a trademark of street culture in San Francisco and beyond. She finds inspiration in the organic yet urban landscape of the city and its surroundings, and is also highly influenced by her travels and the variety of beings that she encounters along the way. She holds a degree from Parsons School of Design in Illustration.
