This painting was made following a summer of working at The National Wildflower centre. It was informed by a visit to the wildflower fields the centre created, alongside memories of childhood and my Auntie who loved flowers. I feel it became a celebration of her plus a more joyful approach to mark-making for me. The painting method was informed by digital manipulation of photos as well as drawing.

The work was first exhibited in St John’s market, Liverpool Biennial Independents 2002.
