About the A5 Lavender Print
Dark purples mixed with lilacs and blues make this print come to life.

A little about the flower
Aromatic plants with masses of fragrant summer flowers, in colour shades of purples, blues, pink and white on wiry spikes above silver-grey or grey-green foliage.
Lavender honey is produced by busy bees. Lavender flowers can be used in cooking – in ice cream, biscuits and cakes.
Lavender stems can flavour barbeques by adding them to the coals.
Lavender oil is also commonly used in aromatherapy and perfumes.
A versatile and beautiful flower indeed.
Aly is a Northern Irish based Artist, Writer and Educator. She has several accolades to her name, most recently:
> Nominated 40 under 40
> Listed as top 100 / Small Business Saturday
> Finalist in the East Side Awards
Aly works from a studio near Belfast which is conducive to her family life with her husband and their three young boys.
She is passionate about placing importance on everyday moments, objects and places in her oil paintings and pastel work.
Her practice is influenced heavily by her own childhood memories of growing up in a smallholding in the Irish countryside.
Themes of the familiar and familial can be traced back as far as her degree show in 2003 when her installation “Daddy’s bread” used 795 empty bread bags (of her father’s favourite loaf) to represent each week from when her Father passed until the opening of her final exhibition.
Aly was awarded a first class honours degree and a distinction in her Masters in Fine Art which she completed following her degree.
