Denise Ramsay

New Zealand

Born 1971

Growing up in New Zealand, surrounded by green hills and native forest, Denise fell in love with flowers and their rich colours. Starting painting in 2012, she discovered she had a passion for translating nature’s beauty onto paper. Based between tropical Hong Kong and rural France, Denise is not short of inspiration. The large scale and vibrancy of her works are modern and detailed and her work has been exhibited around the world and featured in many books and magazines.
