The momentary beauty of flowers and nature as they appear and fade throughout the year.
My botanical art photography and their seasonal tales are created with flora collected in the Algarve, Portugal and in England.
I create my floral art compositions on canvas or real backdrops at my home. They are always shot in natural light.
Selected works will be available as Limited edition Glicee prints when I launch my new online shop this Autumn/Fall .
A moment in nature’s time captured.
FLOWERS FROM MY GARDEN
Most of the flowers and fruit in my floral images are wild or grown in my garden. The flowers and nature finds are always seasonal, locally sourced, foraged responsibly or dried in my studio after they are picked. Often it begins with a seed which I plant and nourish.
“Live in each season as it passes, breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”
Henry David Thoreau
“Where flowers bloom, so does hope.”
Lady Bird Johnson
I seek inspiration with long nature walks, observing and embracing the colours and rhythm of the season. I study, identify and collect wild flowers from the countryside. I’ve also been taking herbal courses to learn more about their benefits. Wild flowers will never cease to amaze me.

First in new series
From January to the end of May wild flowers abound across the Algarve countryside spreading across fields, hillsides and coastal lands. Wild Spring Meadow (below) is part of a new series I’m creating to showcase their beauty and diversity. It is composed of multiple photos I took of different wild flowers and edited together to create this floral landscape.
“Each moment of the year has its own beauty.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
seasonal botanical tales
Each one is a seasonal story.
My floral art is inspired by the seasons and my location. They are visual stories celebrating what is growing or fading, whether cultivated or wild or both, and each a celebration of nature.
