Nature in the form of flowers, plants and trees I like to study up close as well as from a distance.
The shapes and formations of petals, leaves and branches make amazing patterns and complex designs.
The paintings I create are expressive rather than botanical. I like to imply movement and life and often exaggerated colour and pattern.
Wild flowers have a wonderful natural charm while cultivated species demand attention with their stunning colour and exotic shape.
Trees, I have great admiration for and plan to paint more of their diverse characters in the future.
