“Cottage pathways, antique vases filled with fresh flowers, moody landscapes...
I like to think that my work not only shows a passion for colour and detail but a passion for the medium of watercolour. Watching the way paint moves in a wet in wet wash, exploring ways to create texture, achieving glowing colours in a still life - this medium never gets old."
