Born in December 1991, Daisy Sims Hilditch is a portrait and landscape painter based in London.
It is light that excites me and drives me to pick up my brushes and paint. My paintings are a celebration of light and I am fascinated by exploring tonal relationships in order to express the particular light effect before me. I like to paint solely from nature and in natural light. I work on the spot and enjoy being in the elements to capture what I see and feel. I enjoy capturing moods and atmosphere and to do this I love to tackle the challenge outdoors”.
Daisy trained at Charles H. Cecil Studios in Florence. Her work has now been recognised by a number of the top artists awards in the Country. At the age of 18 Daisys portrait of her Grandfather was selected to exhibit in the Saatchi Gallery as part of the Sunday Telegraphs schools prize.
