There is a lovable quality about the actual tools. One feels so kindly to the thing
that enables the hand to obey the brain.
Moreover, one feels a good deal of respect for it;
Without it the brain and the hand would be helpless
- Gertrude Jekyll

Initially designed for a TShirt, see HERE , I thought this Still Life would also make a great gift for a gardener, as either cards or prints…Toronto, Ontario, Canada…

Pastel on Indian Paper..

  • Tshirts can be viewed HERE
  • Floral designs from my portfolio can be viewed HERE

Designs in this series below:

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..
