Daisy is a traditionally trained representational artist, specialising in oil painting and charcoal. She began her training at Lavender Hill studios in 2011 and continued to study and teach at London Fine Art Studios until 2016.
Now she follows her passion for travel, working with charities in order to connect and share her experience of other cultures and landscapes through painting. She hopes her paintings express a common humanity and appreciation of people, culture and landscape. Travel has been an incredible opportunity to meet and learn about other cultures, a privilege she hopes to recreate for viewers.
From her studio in London she enjoys exploring the urban landscape of London, allowing her time to experiment with technique, style and light, while also connecting with other painters. Here she is also able to develop her skills and love for figure painting.

2019 In June Daisy travelled to Morocco with T Films to make a pilot documentary about the experience of travelling through the eyes of an artist.
