Hello happy paintings. That’s the only way to describe local Toronto artist Jeremy Bortz “Flowers of Hope”.

Jeremy Bortz was born in South Africa but moved to Canada back in 2000. Since then, his reputation as a local artist has spread and his paintings have become so popular that they’ve doubled in value in the last few years. Most importantly, Jeremy has been heavily involved in raising money for local charities and hospitals with his Flowers of Hope program. For every $2,000 collected at bank branches, he would adorn a chemotherapy suite with an original painting.

I tracked down Jeremy Bortz and he invited me to his house to choose my paintings. His Flowers of Hope are meant to be grouped in a grid pattern, creating the effect of a large vibrant garden. And it was one of the most difficult tasks trying to pick tiles as they’re all so fabulous. But he’s so welcoming and took the time to show me his studio and explained how he created his paintings. In the end, I bought 6 tiles. But I have to say, you’ll become addicted to Jeremy’s Flowers of Hope and will want to keep on collecting (ie. the women who bought 200 tiles!)
