Daisy is a figurative artist based in London.
Born in 1991 Daisy was brought up in Wiltshire and it was there that she began drawing and painting as a child. She developed a keen interest in plein air painting from an early age after visiting the Musee de L’orangerie in Paris as a teenager. She left feeling totally captivated by the paintings of the impressionists, in particular Claude Monet and Alfred Sisley.
Daisy has since painted around the world in locations such as Morocco and Venice, creating a large body of work. Daisy says, “I get excited by the changing light, whether it be stormy skies in Cornwall or light at the crack of dawn in Florence”.
Having spent the past four years undertaking a rigorous training in sight-size portraiture at the Charles H Cecil studios in Florence, Daisy has developed a passionate appreciation for painting from life.
In the Autumn of 2016 Daisy’s portrait “Alessandra” was selected for the BP Awards at the National Portrait Gallery.
Her portrait “Franziska” was exhibited at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters at the Mall Galleries in December 2016.
