'I love flowers, they are a big part of my life! Who could not feel happy when looking at a bunch of stunning roses and stop to breathe in the heady fragrance or marvel at delicate petals on a poppy or a nasturtium. Nature is truly wonderful................I really enjoy painting an artwork with the fresh flowers in front of me, just soaking up the fragrance and  colour while I paint. ' says Jude.
