I love the diverse colour and texture of flowers, fruit and vegetables and I’m eager to convey this in my paintings. I work mainly in silk paint on silk and oils. Painting flowers on silk gives them a sheen, fragility and translucency like no other medium. I find oils provide me with a medium that transfers well into the texture and diversity of fruit and vegetables.
