Carolyn Sergeant is a flower and landscape artist of great sensitivity. Her work ranges from freely handled depictions of still life subjects, interiors and the familiar landscapes around her home in the Welsh Marches to detailed depictions of single blooms set against rich, monochrome backgrounds. Carolyn Sergeant has exhibited widely, with major exhibitions at Colnaghi, Hazlitt and the Fine Art Society in recent years.
This little study is typically delicate, illustrating three stages of maturity in a wild strawberry plant, from flower to ripe fruit, executed in muted colours against a rich, golden brown wash ground.
