This film is a snapshot of the work of Christine Johnson, a unique visual artist who shares her passion for plants and fowers with journalist / film maker Marianne Latham.
Growing up next to a large park, Christine Johnson had an early fascination with plants and flowers. There were roses, forget- me-nots and delphiniums and as she wandered around the flowers beds and winding paths what Christine saw was different to others. She was short sighted, so everything seemed rather blurry, until she looked at them close up. Later as an artist this was what she loved to paint. Huge canvases full of beautiful flowers that showed minute detail, but were slightly out of focus on the edges.
