About Linda Nieuwstad
Linda Nieuwstad’s flowers are larger than life. Her forget-me-nots are as large as breakfast plates, her roses measure up to the size of truck tires and you can sit underneath her daffodils. She started to make large sized flowers when she visited an old museum in the Netherlands full of flower paintings from the 17th century. She dreamed of living inside the paintings, and she has been making large sized flowers ever since. Linda Nieuwstad creates a world you can enter. Please come in and have a closer look.
“I started to make large sized flowers after I saw the flower paintings by 17th century painter Jan van Huysum. The flowers by van Huysum were amazingly well painted; the tulips looked fresh and alive, and the flies were impressively detailed. At each painting I had the uncontrollable urge to step inside the canvas and touch the soft hairy tulips stems and smell the roses”.
Linda’s flower studio
If you dream about of having large sized flowers in your office, hotel, hospital or during your event Linda Nieuwstad can make a special, one of a kind design for you in her flower studio.
Flowers one of a kind
The first flower bouquet Linda designed was for a Hospital, the Leiden University Medical Center. The day she installed the bouquet the flowers seemed to come alive.
The clean design of the Hospital made the flowers look more lush and abundant than they did in her studio. From that very moment Linda knew a custom design could do miracles.
Have a look around and be amazed by her creations.
