As part of my ‘Glass Reflections’ range, I love how glass and mirrored surfaces pick up the colours from the surrounding area. I focused on using a limited palette of blues, greens and whites as I really wanted to flood the canvas with these colours. When I think of spring or summer, I tend to see these lovely cornflower blue colours. Anemones and Chrysanthemums always make great paintings. I love Anemones for their rich colours and Chrysanthemums for their tactile quality. Many viewers and collectors of my work often say they feel that they can reach into the canvas and touch the petals.

I am lucky enough to live and be brought up very close to the Derbyshire countryside., in the United Kingdom. I like to think that the beautiful colours found in nature are reflected in my paintings and I often find inspiration from the strong shapes of flowers. I particularly admire the work of Georgia O'Keefe and I too use a detailed approach and I find the close up cropping and the unusual viewpoint combines a realistic and abstract approach to my work. I initially started out painting still lifes, but I wanted to grab the viewers' attention and offer a different take on this traditional genre. Once I started painting glass objects I loved the way the colours, usually from a floral subject were picked up in the glass and would resonate throughout the canvas and create unusual and intriguing patterns. I started to think how else I could adapt these techniques which has led me to paint my 'Reflections in water' range. Some of my designs in this range are inspired by my visit to the Conservatory at the Pavillion gardens in Buxton, Derbyshire or nearby Aquariums, where the light from a skylight and running water added to the movement on the surface.
