Florence Humphreys told News Of The Area, “I participated in the Teapot Festival in Morpeth for 30 years, painting as visitors watched, and I am very pleased to be going back to Morpeth, showcasing the beautiful wildflowers of our region in art.”
Last year Florence held an exhibition at the Hunter Regional Botanic Gardens and is showing no signs of slowing up in her prolific production of stunning artworks.
