This is a painting of my interpretation of an iris on silk using Dupont dyes, some of them thickened[my first attempt at using thickened dyes]. I have also added some embellishment. I like to paint in my own style and not photographically so that the resulting painting is more of an impression.The painting measures 31 by 37 cm.

I am passionate about all forms of art and enjoy painting in all media. I adore colour and am especially interested in creating different textural effects in my paintings as well as silkpainting. I have always loved photography and am exploring the experimental side to it, creating unique works and most recently of all using digital textures with my art and photography. I hope you like viewing my works!
