A final year Fine Art student from Coventry University has used flowers as her inspiration to create an eye-catching end of year project.

Lottie Webber, 21, from Bromsgrove, has produced a series of flower-themed paintings for her final Degree Show project. Aimed at creating work with commercial appeal, her collection features imagery of pink roses in a range of abstract styles and sizes.

Incorporating a unique jigsaw-like effect, the paintings are still obviously of flowers but make you look twice to really see them.  As with her previous work, Lottie has created colourful and vibrant canvases with a twist, including the use of fluorescent paints to add a bit of excitement.

Lottie said:

I have always been passionate about colour and these paintings truly reflect this. This final project has let me use the creative skills I have developed during my time at Coventry University School of Art and Design and create work that I hope appeals to a wider audience, not just to myself.

Lottie has continued her floral theme through to her latest venture of creating her own jewellery - suspended dried flowers capture in resin.

Lottie’s paintings will be on show in the art studio space in Graham Sutherland building, Gosford Street, Coventry. Entry is free and open to public from 1st June 2012.
