I have loved flower paintings from the day my father painted one and gave it to me for my eighth birthday. Since then I have been unable to resist buying them in auctions, markets and antique shops building up a collection of much loved examples in my home. As my walls heaved with paintings, I decided it was time to make something more of this passion and now collect and sell them - hanging them in my home until they find a loving owner.
I work in Interior Design and use these paintings frequently in my work. I love co-ordinating colours but good styling always has a surprise element and these paintings provide endless inspiration for decorating, invariably mixing colours in an interesting way. Nature rarely finds the need to match...
Some paintings are of a better quality than others but all hold a special charm. I find that while the best ones stand alone, groups of them provide a riot of colourful impact and if one or two are not perfect they can still add interest to a group.
All these paintings are vintage – generally early twentieth to the mid/later twentieth century and as such can show signs of wear and tear including the original frames which I occasionally repaint and restore if needed. I also reframe selected paintings and hand paint them with ornamental patterns and Bloomsbury inspired designs.
