I am a botanical artist living in one of the most beautiful parts of England, the Cotswolds. I have set out to capture in watercolour, the wonderful array of flowers and fruits that grow here.
Botanical illustration has been used for centuries to identify species of plants. However, I prefer a less scientific approach ...
I work entirely from photographs taken from the many trips made to country houses, orchards and occasionally neighbours' gardens! This makes it possible to capture all colour, light and shade in a moment, and faithfully reproduce it. As composition is so important, I have decided to leave it to Mother Nature!
Botanical art is something extremely special. Time and patience are paramount in producing every piece. Hopefully I have managed this.
Most of my work is life sized but occassionaly I work larger than life.
