Carl ScanesCarl Scanes has built a reputation as one of the country’s leading impressionist artists. His beautiful paintings of wild flowers in their natural habitat has won him both popular and critical acclaim in the UK and the United States.
Born in London in 1964, Carl received his early artistic training from his own father who was a successful abstract artist and taught art at Central St Martin’s College of Art and Design.
After graduating, Carl became a professional painter at the extraordinarily young age of 18.
His interest in flowers continued and he painted extensively in his wife Jenny’s garden in Surrey. He also developed a passion for wild flowers and woodlands, and over time his style evolved into what it is today.
