‘The prints inBirds & Flowersare from several ongoing series of work. The most recent of which are the flower arrangements in black & white geometric vases. When I came to live in Australia over 30 years ago, I knew very little about plants and I wasn’t particularly interested in birds. I grew up in London where the gardens were small, and the birds were unremarkable.I was seduced by the brightness of the light here, the largeness of the skies, the abundance of native flowers and the rainbow colours of the parrots, it was all so exotic.
My interest in bird watching and native plants had begun. I started to notice the quiet beautyof the smaller birds, the ones whoare always there when you are out walking in the bush.
