Gardens are places of vitality, whimsy, beauty and change.  The cycle of life and death plays out  in blasts of colour and subdued monotones. I’m entranced by the shapes, patterns and textures of the garden, and the wacky wildness of nature’s palette. I use petals, desiccated leaves and plant material in my paintings, combined with paint, charcoal and papers.
