A little about the flower 

I love that lilies are social plants, they grow best in groups of three to five, like a little family unit or bunch of friends at uni.
The lily has a diversity of symbolism throughout the world. In fact, different coloured lilies represent different things altogether. While the white lily represents purity, the tiger lily represents pride or confidence. In Japan and China, lilies are a traditional symbol of good luck, whereas Greek lore associates the flower with motherhood. Pink Stargazer lilies represent hope for wealth and prosperity while white Peruvian lilies are a symbol of devotion.

 

About Aly

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.
