I’m in a spring mood! These primroses are so cheery when most gardens are just bare soil.

Watercolour on Fabriano Artistico extra white CP 140lb.

The original work measures 15″ × 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”.
