I will be exhibiting a number of floral and botanical abstract paintings as part of this year’s NAFAS 60th Anniversary. The National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies are holding three days of events and demonstrations at The Business Design Centre in Islington, London from 8-10 August, followed by a gala dinner at Grosvenor House Hotel on 10 August.
I have been invited to exhibit and sell some of my floral abstract paintings, and will be donating one as a prize in their charity raffle.
My motivation as an artist is to portray the beauty in the seen and unseen world around us, and for me flowers are one of natures most beautiful creations.
I have always loved flowers and am forever inspired by their detail, shape and colour. I used to take macro photographs many years ago preferring the detail of an up close almost distorted image - I found beauty in the magnified detail rather than the whole picture. I translate this passion now through my art by painting abstract florals and botanicals.
