About Amy Florence

"Nature is above all, creative. I have a love for the natural world and I am a keen anthropologist, bird watcher and naturalist. The beauty of the world around me is my inspiration and I want to capture and describe it to others through my painting.

I hope that this fascination is something that will be conveyed through my paintings. My intention is to show this to others in a hope that they will stop and look around them, and see beyond themselves, towards something that is not only mesmeric and contemplative, but also profoundly beautiful"
