Close-up cat portrait painted in watercolours on Fabriano Artistico 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”.

  • Thank you so much Linda, I’ve challenged myself to paint more animals over the next year, I’d forgotten how much fun they can be!
