Denise Heywood’s aim in painting is to convey the beauty and mystery which lies at the heart of nature. Her subjects are found in her garden and the fields and lanes near her Shropshire home. She paints layering many washes of watercolour, refining details with small sable brushes to portray the jewel like quality of her subjects.
Denise has work in private and museum collections worldwide. The prestigious Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, Carnegie Mellon University, US, acquired her painting “Pomegranates “ for its permanent collection.
She is a Fellow Member of the Society of Botanical Artists and for many years was a member of the Royal Miniature Society, exhibiting annually at the Mall Galleries, London.
