Hampton Court 07.19

Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival. July 2019.

I currently have a stand at the Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival where, on Stand 945 in the Country Living Pavilion, I’ll have lots of framed, mounted and unframed prints on display in all sizes from A4 up to 30″x40″. There will be, for the first time, three unglazed tray framed prints including a new print, Mixed Hellebores 1. The show is on from 1-7 July. Details here.

RHS Botanical Art Show. February 2017.

RHS Botanical Art Show. February 2017.

On Saturday 25th February I went to the RHS Botanical Art Show at Lindley Hall, Vincent Square, London. There were numerous outstanding entries to the competition but I particularly enjoyed the work of four artists. Sarah Jane Humphrey’s lavender studies were exquisitely detailed and I was fascinated by the labyrinthine roots of  Hideko Kamoshita’s illustrations of Cirsium plants. The image here shows the unconventional compositional style of Bridget Gillespie’s studies of root vegetables, one of which received the best botanical painting award. The best botanical art exhibit award was given to Mariko Ikeda for her set of outstanding watercolour on vellum images of Pandanus (screw pine).

Sunday Times Style 5.15

Floral photography for the Sunday Times Style Magazine/Chelsea Flower Show 2015

Following a couple of great weekends selling pictures and talking plants, flowers and photography at the Dulwich Festival Artists’ Open House, it’s now time for the 2015 RHS Chelsea Flower Show. In this Sunday’s Sunday Times Style Magazine there’s a double page spread which I shot in collaboration with Flora Starkey, a floral designer who is currently working with garden designer Jo Thompson on the M&G garden retreat show garden at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.
