The inspiration behind the painting

White roses are one of the most common and beautiful flowers in the world.

Apart from their magnificent beauty, they hold cultural, religious, and political importance.

For instance, they symbolize purity, love, innocence, deep respect, and reverence depending on cultures and societies.

According to stories, the white rose grew in the Garden of Eden where Adam and Eve lived.

Chameleon is one of the interesting varieties of white roses.

The chameleon variety is more common in Japan.

As its name suggests, in the morning, the petals of this rose are bright red and in the evening, it turns white.

In legends, white roses are associated with Aphrodite.

Aphrodite was a Greek goddess who was the symbol of beauty, love, passion, and pleasure.

It was believed that Aphrodite, who came out of the sea, stepped on the shore, turned the seafoam into beautiful white roses. And, every step she took gave birth to fragrant herbs and flowers.

Since then, a white rose has been a symbol of innocent love and beauty.

White roses are an integral part of wedding celebrations. 

It is hard to imagine a wedding without roses. Especially, the white roses play a crucial role.

People make up bouquets for brides, in whose hands these flowers indicate eternal and sublime feelings, love that can overcome years and vast distances.

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.This is one of the many reasons Aly is a well established artist in Belfast, Northern Ireland and the United States of America.

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. Specializing in Acrylic, oil and Mixed Media Aly has a love for creating stunning vibrant paintings.  Along with a love of monochrome and simple sketches.

And don’t forget to check out my BLOG

Here is a place where you can find recipes, information on physical wellbeing, travel and home ideas as well as life ramblings.

I use art in all it’s mediums to express my love for the “everyday”. Coffee cups, familiar landmarks, colour associations. All of these, I believe, contribute to what is known as our “everyday”. Not only do I love drawing them, I think they are worth placing importance on.

This blog is an extension of my creativity.

I convey a realistic (the good, the bad, the funny, the sad) view into the life of a family woman, a homemaker and a business woman on a journey of physical and mental wellness.

Have fun navigating the site and don’t hesitate to send me a note if you want to know more.
