Lemon Myrtle in Bloom

Lemon Myrtle in Bloom is the latest artwork completed in my series of still life paintings From The Garden. It explores the delicate and resilient nature of Australian flowers in a beautiful and attractive arrangement.

Layers of gouache and machine embroidery create an image that is complex and detailed, much in the manner of the original plant that inspired the work.

This painting is available for sale, please contact me to find out more.

Australian Artist, painting with Gouache and Oil Pastel on Paper. Lover of lines, curves, colour and texture.

Born and bred in Melbourne, Australia, I've spent most of my adult life travelling, time living in Sweden and Adelaide and have settled in Brisbane with my little family.

I'm creative by nature and find inspiration in many different corners of this world, some just under my nose, others a life time away. I blog because I love to share what I discover, and to inspire myself.
