Daisy is a portrait and landscape painter specialising in painting from life.

Daisy's portraits are painted from life, to capture the personality and spirit of her subject in a painterly and fluid way. She also loves being out in the open and paints her landscapes en plein air.

Daisy is proud to be featured in Tatler's 'Contemporary Artists to Know' article, read it in full here.

+ More about Daisy

“Daisy is an extremely versatile painter in the landscape and portrait traditions working both in plein air as the Impressionists before her and in the studio on ‘sight-size’ portraits of remarkable naturalism and elegance. Stylistically her handling of the medium is both painterly and refined in its application. In this respect she is an artist who understands how to control and manipulate paint in order to achieve portraits of astounding intimacy and beauty” — Philip Mould - leading British Art and Old Masters specialist
