My second ever linocut print! This will be used for my Christmas cards this year.

I have a passion for watercolours and love to play with colour, exploring the effect of combining pigment and water on the paper. Challenging the traditional view that watercolours are pale and washy, I love vibrant colour used in exciting combinations. I am especially drawn to flowers, their three dimensional forms presenting endless challenges.

I won the SAA Amateur Artist of the Year 2012 for my painting “Cosmic Poppies”.

    Lovely linear flow and contrast creating an atmospheric image

  • Thank you so much Susan, I wanted to capture the contours of the Herefordshire countryside, lots of gentle, rolling hills.
