Being out in nature and taking in all the wonderful beauty around us. I love how different light and weather changes can change the look of a landscape. I love finding new shapes and forms in flowers and leaves. Nature is an endless form of inspiration for me.
Describe your creative process.
The first thing I do is choose a colour combination that I want to work with, this usually comes from the mood I'm feeling.
