Floral Art and Landscape

Award winning artist - Carole Irving ARPS has painted since she was old enough to hold a paint brush, her family is sprinkled with professional artists who encouraged her enthusiasm for colour, texture and shape.

A passionate and enthusiastic gardener, Carole has designed and built her garden from a blank canvas it is crammed full of plants which inspire her floral art pieces.

Carole is an Professional Associate at The SAA and provides tuition for individuals and groups. Her workshops are announced on her website and are available to anyone who wants to experiment with paint and ideas

Carole sells her work at prices that are affordable for as many people as possible because she believes that owning a piece of original art should be a right not a privilege, pieces start at £30.
