We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

This has to be the most beautiful poppy I’ve ever seen! A lovely plum colour, with dark spots and centre, and the crinkliest, papery petals.

Watercolours on Fabriano Artistico paper, the original work measures 14″ × 11″

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”.
