About the print

The above is an image of the original, which has now sold.

Thick acrylic on canvas, the paint marks are clear to see in the print.

Scroll over the image to activate the zoom tab and see the thick layers of oil paint. We have made it our priority for our prints to be as true to life as the real thing. Movement is really important to Aly and she wants the viewer to feel responsive to this in the marks of the palette knife.

Purples, yellows and green bursting forth from the image capturing the clustered heads of the peonie.

This beautiful print can hold any space in your home.

A little about the flower 


Slow-growing but rewarding, herbaceous peonies are large and imposing plants with a brief but impressive flowering in late spring to early summer. Grow them for their large, brightly coloured, often spicily scented, showy flowers. Eventually forming generous clumps, besides their flowers these perennials have impressive dissected foliage, often tinged red in spring. Traditional cottage garden plants, these long-lived and drought-tolerant plants also work well with modern perennial plantings.


About the artist

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.
