Lillian Stannard came from a family of artists, and was likely to have been taught by her father Henry Stannard, her earliest works were of butterflies, such as this.

Stannard’s passion was flowers and this influenced her work for over forty years, competing with the likes of George Elgood, Ernest Arthur Rowe and Beatrice Parsons.

By the time she was thirty she had become one of the most celebrated painters of English gardens. Her most prestigious admirers were the Royal Family, who purchased a number of her works.
