The mainstay of my work is painting flower portraits. I don’t think of myself as a botanical painter and my work does not resemble that genre. I always paint from life and the aim is to capture the life and hidden personality of a plant or a flower and not just painstakingly painting the details. I produce larger than life size portraits of my sitters - mostly in Watercolour, and spend most of the time being with the flower, just observing and getting a sense of what the plants about - much like having a one sided conversation where I am the listener.
All paintings are large scale.
