Mixed Media • Purple Route

I create Leafworks using pressed leaves and flowers. I love the natural world and my local landscape is a great inspiration.

My Practice

The natural material is collected from the woods, hedgerows and gardens of SW Scotland and beyond. These days my work has become freer and less geometric. I am using watercolour paint more and I create more landscapes.

Tools & Materials

My studio is my home and I have all my pressing books available for inspiration, each book is full of leaves and flowers collected throughout the year. I use watercolour paper and card , watercolour paints and a variety of other media.If I need to cut squares I have a brass template to use.
