Watercolour landscapes, Botanical paintings and Prints.

I opened DaffodilStudio in 2013 to showcase my personalised Calligraphy Prints and show a wider audience a range of options for calligraphy to suit a special occasion, combined with a choice of any of my landscape or flower images.

I have now also added sections selling inkjet prints, monoprints, and original watercolour paintings of flowers and landscapes.

My Degree was in Textile Design and texture continues to be important in my painting. I often start watercolours with a watery wash of paint and enjoy developing the accidental ourishes this creates.

I am interested in all things botanical and take great inspiration from wild flowers and gardens, particularly my own small city garden. Last summer I started making a new collection of one off original prints or monoprints, made using plant materials from my garden in Cardiff. The fragile nature of the flowers and leaves means each print is completely unique. Some of the prints are embellished with calligraphy, butterflies and bees. I have now developed a series of collages using these prints.

Apart from the beautiful landscapes around me in Wales, the other big influences on my art work are poetry, which has encouraged me to use calligraphy in my paintings, and travel, which has inspired me to paint landscapes in India and Italy as well as many places in the UK.

I am happy to work to commission - just let me know what you have in mind and we can take it from there.
