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”.

    I love how the background is faded, almost uniformly and how only a few flowers are in focus. Its also wonderful that you could put these colors together that are by themselves kind of bland, but together bright and beautiful.

  • Thank you!
