My current work explores contemporary colour, through flowers or figures, in strong compositions that often feature the white of the paper.

Flowers and figures both have fascinating features and personalities to portray as a subject.

I am enjoying the quirks of smooth watercolour paper after years of working on cold press paper. Both bring unpredictable watercolour textures, but in different ways.
