Ringo and Pansies by Anne-Marie Butlin has become our most popular cat card since it was introduced in January. Our customers find him irresistible despite his serious look! We feel very lucky to have Ringo in our collection along with the rest of Anne-Marie's beautiful images. Her oil paintings reproduce beautifully as cards and are suited to many occasions making her range one of our most successful.
Ringo and Pansies by Anne-Marie Butlin
Anne-Marie Butlin trained at Harrow and Loughborough College of Art. She currently lives in Crouch End, North London and paints full time from her garden studio.
'All my work is essentially an attempt to make a beautiful, uplifting image. In both my garden and still life paintings I hope to convey the character of different flowers and the unique feeling they can create in a space; the strong structures and often the sheer joyfulness of their appearance. I try to capture the sense of calm that flowers can give us; a chance to contemplate and meditate, and remember our connection with the natural world.'
Each May Anne-Marie opens her house and studio as part of the Crouch End Open Studios event. She is a regular contributor to Artists and Illustrators magazine and currently exhibits her work in the following galleries:
