Welcome ...

... to ArtbyAilsaChapman where you can view my paintings and drawings which are mainly of flowers and other botanical subjects. Some of my pictures are also used to design my greetings cards which you will also find on this site.

Exploring the botanical world around me through drawing and painting, I am inspired by a variety of plants and flowers which either grow at home or were given to me as gifts.

Being an artist, for me, is as much about exploring and experimenting with media as it is about exploring my favourite subject - flowers. I like to paint and draw flowers and other botanical subjects much larger-than-life-size to convey the feeling that one is looking at them close-up.


I use a variety of media, from coloured pencils and pastels, gouache and acrylics, to digital media including Corel Painter. I use different media to express the forms, colours and textures of my subjects.






'What I wish to show when I paint is the way I see things with my eyes and in my heart',

Raoul Dufy.

I hope you enjoy viewing my gallery, which is regularly updated with new works. 


I am based in Orpington, Kent/ southeast London, England, United Kingdom.
