In this world we walk on hell's roof and gaze at flowers. Issa.
Plants and flowers are my passion and pleasure. I love to visit regional botanic gardens which are a great source of plant and insect life for my paintings. My time is split between New Zealand and Australia so I have the colourful tropics for inspiration, and my own garden set in 60 acres on a temperate peninsula in northern New Zealand.
The garden is all about beauty, allure and trickery - and this is what flowers are for - to fool the insects!
For this series of prints I have chosen iconic plants to illustrate the beauty and dynamic of gardens.
