What is Seeded Sunflowers?

Seeded sunflowers is a project created by myself, Holly Ogden. My aim is to paint as many sunflowers in public view as I can. Each sunflower painted is accessible to the public, for the community to visit at their leisure, or for passersby alike. 

I create these sunflower murals completely FREE of charge in a bid to involve as many business' and community members as possible. This allows me to paint venues and on a scale that never would of been possible had they been commissioned. 

I started a fundraiser to fund this project. This allows me to buy supplies and materials without being completely out of pocket. A lot of individuals and business owners who have received a sunflower mural have contributed to this which has allowed me to continue painting on a larger scale which I never thought possible. My reasoning for making these sunflowers free of charge is to ensure that this project is entirely community focused.

So far this project has allowed me to paint sunflowers at many prominent locations. Including The Yoga Garage, Oak Pilates, Wild Fig Cafe, Voyage Kitchen, Village Coffee Marmion, Lloyds of Margaret River, NOA Bridal, Pharmacy 777, West Coast Drive, Sunflowers Animal Farm Margaret River, Gypsy Soul Coffee Van, Bakers Delight, Town of Busselton and many more locations.

I often get asked "why sunflowers?" and the answer is simple. They spread joy! They're very metaphorical in that they always "follow the sun" and can guide in times of uncertainty. I began painting sunflowers at the outbreak of COVID. In a bid to shine a light when people were in isolation and going through tough times. This allowed people to go on "sunflower hunts" which involved the community. This evolved into painting LARGE panels that have been installed as murals along Marmion Ave and in Margaret River. This allows people to visit, see the beauty of a sunflower and take a photo.

What started as me attempting to perfect my mural painting skills, has blossomed into the brand it is today.

I can't wait to paint more sunflowers and spread joy as far as this project will allow.
