A delicate, fluffy dandelion clock seedhead on a bright blue and jade green background.

Watercolours on 140lb Fabriano artistico extra white cold pressed paper.

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”.

    Ruth this is breathtaking! So delicate and beautiful. I know, Dandelions are considered weeds, but when viewed like this they are a stunning part of nature.
