Glass reflections with white Chyrsathemums


Painting white Chrysanthemums is always a joy as there is always so much detail for me to add. I particularly like how the centre has a subtle soft green that I echoed throughout the rest of the painting. Delicate greens and the soft pinks of Stargazer lilies work so well together and allowed the colours to resonate throughout the glass bowl and mirrored surface, this feature is a signature style of mine and can be found in all my ‘Glass Reflections’ range.

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.
