I do work in several mediums including watercolour, soft pastel, acrylic and graphite. However, this year I have been exploring the mediums of gouache and gold leaf in creating designs based on botanical forms.
I use my own garden for many of these designs, making detailed drawings of the plants, and working out the colours I will use before I begin. I use a tiny brush and my magnifying glass to see the details! Towards the end of the process I add the gold leaf, which makes the paintings sing!
Please note that the gold reflects differently in the photos, so it looks silver, gold or even a bronze-red.
These works are available for sale, and I will add more as I complete them. If you would like to purchase or organise a commission with me, please phone or email me.
