Daffodil on blue by George Parapadakis (monocotylidono)

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

Daffodils are everywhere in England, especially in April just before Easter. They are also typically associated with Mother’s day (which in England we celebrate earlier than May). I found this little “arrangement”, smiling at me from our kitchen window sill, after my daughter collected them while walking the dog… :-)

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.
