Macro Landscapes

I was inspired to paint these ‘Macro Landscapes’ after visiting ‘The Poetry of the Everyday’; a fantastic exhibition of paintings depicting colourful interiors, by the French artist Edouard Vuillard.

Whilst the exhibition was primarily about pattern and colour in interior scenes, the themes resonated with my interest in depicting nature. I see summer flowers and gardens as their own miniature worlds full of abstract pattern and colour .

The scenes in my paintings are from photographs taken in glass houses, as well as stately home gardens and cottage gardens in Buckinghamshire.
