Artwork Description:

Title: Nymphaeaceae

When the water lily flowers in my garden pond, I am always amazed at how perfect and almost artificial the flowers look. This painting focuses on the colour and striking appearance of the newly opened flower, which occurs in the morning, then closes again mid-afternoon. The flowers close and die back after a few days, sinking below the surface.

Artist Bio:

I am a Derbyshire-based, artist/illustrator and art tutor.

I have a degree in textile design, and a masters from Central St Martins in Communication Design/Illustration.

My inspirations include natural history, explorers and naturalists, Hitchcock films, kitchen sink dramas, ghosts & haunted housesĀ  and Agatha Christie and Daphne du Maurier novels.

I am currently working on a series of Shackleton illustrations which evoke the foreboding atmosphere and historic accounts of the Trans-Antarctic Expedition, as well as developing an idea for a graphic novel inspired by Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.
