Yvonne Glenister Hammond
is inspired by the play of light on flowers, fruit and
vegetables. She likes to create tactile images bathed
in glowing colour and arranged carefully on the page
in bold, confident compositions.
The varied forms and rich hues of
irises, fuchsias, ripe squashes and artichokes, luscious
plums and strawberries are combined in her work.
She has always drawn and painted but
took up botanical painting seriously in 1995. She studied
at the Chelsea Physic Garden under the remarkable Anne-Marie
Evans and was awarded a distinction. Yvonne is also an experienced tutor and in 2011 was given an award for her work on the Society of Botanical Artists' Distance Learning Diploma Course.
