Artwork Description:

Title: Sea Holly

I painted this beautiful Sea Holly originally for my friend who lives on the coast of Norfolk and wanted a large seaside plant picture above her bed in her old coastguard’s cottage. She loves her garden and allotment, as well as lilac/purple being her favourite colour! In this piece I’ve paired the Sea Holly with Marram Grasses which are local to Norfolk’s coastal sand dunes. 

I created this using alcohol ink pens with splashes of neat alcohol onto Yupo paper. 

I hope you love this design as much as my friend does!

Artist Bio:

My name’s Karen Johnson and I'm the Derby based artist behind Millie Moth. Inspired by my wild garden, my work falls into 2 styles - one uses alcohol inks to paint vibrant flowers, and the other is created digitally using elements of my paintings, drawings and isolated photographic images. My work is full of colour and I aim to convey the happiness I feel when I’m around flowers and foliage. There is such a wealth of life in every small growing space and I try to capture that beauty and vigour by injecting a little wildness and joy into every piece.
