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.
