Brand New Cut Out August 24, 2018 17:47

I love this little spot on the wall by my window with the hanging plant, and the light is perfect for taking photographs of my new floral work 


Wild Flowers on the Wall August 21, 2018 22:34

In the Wind Paper Cut Collage July 23, 2018 22:05

This is one of a new body of work that I am creating based on the silhouettes of flowers and leaves. It represents my take on nature and is colourful, joyful, simplistic, strong, graphic and stylised. It is inspired by a bed of wildflowers and I have reduced the imagery down to shapes whilst maintaining the movement and vitality of the flowers in their natural environment.
It is a cut out with collage and it’s a joy to be using blocks of colour having previously concentrated on the striking dynamic of black and white.


Floral Collage July 20, 2018 12:00

I’ve been experimenting with shape, colour and collage and have created this large scale, highly detailed floral artwork.

Botanicals July 04, 2018 10:30

I’ve been experimenting with some new cut out work. I cut the shapes to use ina collage but I like the negative space. And I like the boldness and lack of detail!
