In the world of artistry, innovation often blooms from the most unexpected sources. Today, we delve into the lush, captivating world of moss and its transformation into breathtaking art.

Chapter 1: Meet Federica Torri

Meet Federica Torri, the first featured artist of 2024! Join us as we peek into her artistic journey, where moss undergoes transformation into stunning creations under her expert touch. Federica’s works reflect nature’s harmony, encapsulating beauty, tranquility, and boundless creativity.

S: What inspired you to become an artist?

F: A deep rooted and heartfelt love for beauty and nature. In general, what’s important for me is the sense of wonder and curiosity. I am very experiential, I don’t usually plan my subject I allow the medium to inspire me. I need to touch it and feel it.

The artistic journey began with a deep-rooted love for beauty and nature, serving as her muse and driving force behind her creative endeavors. Nature’s splendor, emotional connections, and gratitude guide her artistic expression.


Chapter 2: The Mossmerizing Appeal of Moss in Federica’s Creations

Her creative process is an organic dance with inspiration. Moss, wood, and flowers converge as she breathes life into her art, driven by themes of beauty, harmony, and a passionate ode to Frida Kahlo’s floral energy.

S: Could you tell us about your creative process and the techniques you use?

F: My creative process is rooted in the inspiration I get either in the natural world or in my emotional world. I might be inspired by the ocean or a rainy day walk in the woods. Or by a strong feeling of gratitude and love. Following this I gather my medium, moss for sure and sometimes wood or flowers or both. I let my hands and eyes soak in the forms that are becoming alive without judgement. Then I take a photo and step away. When I come back, I decide if I should glue as is or if I should go through another round of creative assembly. I also like to harvest moss, leaves, and sticks in the woods and dry them naturally before they become a part of a painting.

S: Are there specific themes or messages you aim to convey through your art?

F: Beauty, Harmony and Passion for sure. Frida Kahlo is a huge inspiration for me, and I feel very inspired to bring the beauty and energy of flowers and emotions in my creations. I want people to feel they are looking at a piece of nature in their living room, something simple and colorful.

Chapter 3: Favorite Pieces and Their Essence:

Federica’s captivating gallery filled with moss-based creations, ranging from heart-shaped moss paintings adorned with ferns and eucalyptus pieces decked with vibrant flowers, embodying the dream wall décor. Each artwork resonates with sentiment, symbolism, and the beautiful symbiosis of art and nature, encapsulating her passion and patience.

S: Do you have any favorite pieces, and if so, what makes them special to you?

F: I have couple of pieces that I love. One is a heart shaped moss painting where I used ferns and flowers and eucalyptus leaves. I made it for my partner and it’s just so right in conveying what I feel for him. I also have a huge round piece that looks like a starry night where the stars are very colorful flowers. It’s just looking like I would like all the walls of my house to look: A mossy starry night where the stars are very colorful flowers.

S: What advice do you have for aspiring artists looking to pursue a similar path?

F: Create a place in your home or environment where you feel safe. Scan your body so that you slow the mind and are living in your body and not in the rational mind. And just start creating. No planning, just flow and pleasure. I also regularly do some beauty therapy, meaning that it is absolutely necessary for me to be exposed to beauty— it being natural beauty or art or simply something sensorial and exciting.

S: Was there a problem you were having before you discovered SuperMoss?

F: I was having issues finding good quality moss that would keep vibrant colors for a long time. Also SuperMoss offers an unmatched range of amazing colors that allow me to paint like a painter but with moss!

F: I just felt I didn’t have the tools to convey my vision. And then the SuperMoss colors heaven showed up in my life! I was working on a commissioned piece and I was just not feeling it. I then went on the SuperMoss website and got so inspired to change the palette and I got the right colors that promptly arrived to my door!
