A spring stroll through the brownstone-lined streets in Carroll Gardens is enough to understand why flowers are always on Kim Parker’s mind.

Birds chirp and lilacs bloom as she sits down with her paintbrush. Within minutes, the buds and blossoms on the paper reflect the aptly named neighborhood outside her front door.

“For a floral painter, right, pretty much you’re in your element. And I take walks, I call them flower walks, with my husband and my dog,” she says.

Last April, the United States Postal Service approached her to design two of this year’s new stamps.
