From the artist
This painting is based on a beautiful walled garden which I visited in Spring. The deep crimson, almost black, tulips contrasted beautifully with the tiny, vibrant blue 'forget-me-nots' at their feet. I wanted to re-create the jewel like colours and use a 'tapestry' of marks to show the intricate pattern of foliage and flowers.

We’re big fans of Anne Marie here at A&I, her work is full of ideas while always retaining real beauty and elegance. A regular contributor to the magazine, she’s wonderful at communicating with words as well as paint. Tulip Garden’s rich and dynamic balance of colours and texture pulls you into the depth of the painting. There is so much energy: it makes you want to get out among the flowers.
